Not sure about you but I didn’t actually get to experience any of these first hand, however, I have seen enough movies, listened to the songs and read enough books on https://theclimateconnection.org/ these events to feel like I could have been there. People really made a difference. Collectively, their individual actions make governments the world over stand up and listen. Find out how you can be part of a movement now!
Around us today there is a movement building, it’s called the Climate Change movement. Through this movement, you have the opportunity to add your voice and be part of something big. Below are three ways that you can join the movement! And the best part is you don’t need to travel far. In fact, you can stay where you are right now and take part in some of these “actions,” right from where you are sitting! Timing is everything though. We have a unique opportunity. Governments are poised to meet at the highest levels in Copenhagen from December 7-18th, to discuss one topic – climate change. This is a unifying issue the world over that affects us all. It is an issue that we all need to take action. Governments are listening, will you be heard?
Three ways you can change the world!
1. If you are a Canadian, log on to Moms Against Climate Change (you can log on even if you are a Dad!) Moms Against Climate Change is a campaign of Environmental Defense and Forest Ethics, two of Canada’s leading environmental groups. The campaign is challenging the Canadian government to make a difference in Copenhagen at the Climate Conference. The website is asking you to upload pictures of your kids. The pictures, which now number over almost 1,600, will form a WALL that will be projected in Ottawa and Vancouver at several outdoor locations on Monday, December 7th, the day the Copenhagen meeting begins. On December 12th, in support of 350.org (see below) the photos will be projected again.
2. If you are a “citizen of the world” sign up at 350.org to hold a “candle light vigil,” a march or any other local action, over the December 12th weekend, to raise attention to the climate crisis, (if you celebrate Hanukkah, this should be easy!). 350.org is an international campaign dedicated to “building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis”. On October 24th, 350.org organized a “planetary” day of action on climate change where in 181 countries 5281 actions on climate change took place! Help send a message to world leaders meeting in Copenhagen from December 7-18th, make your voice, and your actions heard!
