Thousands Turn Out for Global Climate Wake Up Call
This week's Global Wake Up call proved to be amazing with 2,632 events in 134 countries! There were tens of thousands of phone calls crashing government lines, unbelievable creativity and diversity of events, directly reaching heads of state and cabinet ministers from Australia to Europe.
This Wake Up call was covered by major news outlets all over the world. Europe's environment chief praised the mobilization and the UK Prime Minister became the first major world leader to agree to Avaaz’s demand to go to Copenhagen.
This gives us hope that the world leaders are listening! Tuesday's UN summit showed that one day of action won't be enough to get real progress on climate. People need to come back again and again, louder and louder, until we get a fair, ambitious and binding climate treaty.
Avaaz has planned another global day of action on on October 24th, and has already started their planning for the largest climate mobilization in history on December 12th. This is set to take place in the final days of the Copenhagen negotiations.
