Protests erupted yesterday with thousands around the world taking to the streets, asking that governments take action against climate change.
The overarching tactic of the protesters appears to be to use peaceful methods to close roads and bring the issue to the attention of people in power, with brave tactics ranging from cementing themselves under lorries with glue to one man who parked his car in the middle of a street and locked himself to the steering wheel with a bike chain.
The protests are expected to last two weeks and will cause severe delays in the major cities of London, Berlin, Madrid, Amsterdam and Sydney among others, with road users experiencing the most disruption.
We understand that, despite the importance of these protests, people still need to move things through cities, and that’s where Shiply can help.

Why not take the headache out of the road closures and use Shiply to find someone who is going there anyway.
