Climate demonstration

Today I attended the big climate demonstration in Copenhagen with up to 100.000 other participants. I had an absolutely great time and there was an awesome and peaceful atmosphere. More than 500 organisations had organized the demonstration among which Greenpeace was a major and very visible player. As a longterm member of Greenpeace I joined their delegation which was great fun - they had the best bongo-drum band of the whole demonstration!

Starting out at the Christiansborg Parliament Square.

Change the future!

The World Climate Summit is currently taking place in Denmark. Our apartment is directly across Hotel Scandinavia which host the Brazilian delegation which as the fourth largest polluter of CO2 has a crucial role in the climate negotiations.

In order to remind them of their need to act now to change the future of the melting ice climbing routes (!) I am displaying a backlit Greenpeace poster on my balcony.

If you want to be part of changing the future I encourage you to take part in the peaceful Climate demonstration on December 12 at 1 PM at the Parliament Square. More than 50.000 participants are expected which will be the biggest demonstration in Denmark ever.
