29 May 2009

Climate countdownSix Months to Copenhagen

Join us on June 13th at 12pm on Sandymount Beach in Dublin for fun and games...

...AND a mass choreographed event to create a giant human hourglass! This event is a call to action that will ask the Irish government to play their part in ensuring that the crucial climate change negotiations in Copenhagen are strong, effective and just.

When: 12pm Saturday June 13th 2009,

Where: Sandymount Strand (meeting at Martello Tower), Dublin.

Why: To call on the Irish Government to show leadership and to play their part in securing a strong, just global deal on climate change and commit to climate protection legislation in Ireland.
And to show that hundred of people care about climate change and the outcome of the pivotal climate change talks that will be taking place in Copenhagen this December.

The action:

* A mass choreographed action on the beach where people spell out a message by holding pieces of paper above their heads.
* Once the large group has assembled, our choreographer will direct people into positions on the beach to spell out key messages about climate change
* In keeping with tone of a fun day out we are also going to provide entertainment such as music, face painting and other activities

Who: You!

Stop Climate Chaos is a coalition of civil society organisations campaigning to ensure Ireland plays its part in preventing runaway climate change
