With a BBQ hosted by Lucy Lawless, a lifeboat named Copenhagen, and poem by Rhys Darby titled Global Warning (watch this space for the video) we officially launched the Sign On campaign on Saturday.
With a host of big name climate ambassadors including Stephen Tindall, Geoff Ross, Robyn Malcolm and Francesca Price to name a few, we kicked off in fine fashion.
It's not the usual Greenpeace approach but these are unusual times.
Climate change is now happening faster than anyone expected. Normally reserved scientists are raising the alarm. In December this year world leaders will gather in Copenhagen to Sign On to a global agreement for action. For NZ to do its bit to help avoid catastrophic impacts, Prime Minister John Key needs to go to Copenhagen and Sign On to reduce New Zealand’s emissions by 40 per cent by 2020.
This is the message the Sign On ambassadors echo and it is what thousands of New Zealanders are already supporting here on the Sign On website.
We need you to Sign On and we need you to tell your friends and family to Sign On too. This year is our window of opportunity to turn climate change around.
By December we need hundreds of thousands of kiwis standing alongside us and our climate ambassadors in supporting John Key to do the right thing at Copenhagen.
