Members of Extinction Rebellion Lowestoft have braved the rain to hand out fliers and flapjacks in the town centre.
More than 10 members of the group took to the high street to share their knowledge on climate change, wave the XR flag and explain the reasons why the environmental group are still protesting.
The local branch said the response of the town to climate change is "very mixed" and with some people stating they disagree with the group's protesting methods in London.
Emma Bateman from Lowestoft attended the protests in London with her 81-year-old mother Anne Bateman - who also made the groups flags.
She said both her and mother camped out in the streets to help support future generations.
