Bridge to a Cool Planet -- An international day of climate action!
Posted October 16th, 2009 - 4:50 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Hey everyone!

As you may or may not know there are some very important UN climate talks happening this December in Copenhagen, Denmark. The nations of the world are meeting to establish an ambitious global climate agreement to follow up on the Kyoto Protocol which expires in 2012. Many people are calling this the most important meeting in history, as the outcome of this will directly affect the fate of humanity!!

Citizens from around the world are calling for a fair, binding, and ambitious agenda at Copenhagen. There is going to be an International Day of Climate Action happening with over 120 countries participating on October 24th. Vancouver will be participating full force on this day, with an event called Bridge to a Cool Planet. We are hoping to have over 10,000 people at this event!!!

When: Saturday Oct. 24th 11am bridge opens, parade at noon
Where: Cambie St. Bridge
What: A peaceful parade (this is not a protest or a rally!!) that will be ending at Science world where there will be music, performances, workshops, speakers and more!

Bring your friends this is going to be a really meaningful and fun day! For more information, or to get involved as a volunteer check out www.bridgecoolplanet.ca

I am going with a group from UBC, but perhaps someone could organize a group of couchsurfers to go? Because this is an international event, it is perfect for couchsurfers! Hope to see lots of you there!
