A child holds a windmill symbolizing renewable energy during the launch of the Greenpeace-led Chang(e) Caravan in an elephant conservation center at the outskirts of Khao Yai National Park, about 200 kilometers from Bangkok. The 15-day journey will traverse the vast Central Plains of Thailand, to arrive at the outskirts of Bangkok. The city is the venue of a crucial UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change) intercessional meeting before the Copenhagen climate summit in December. The caravan is additionally calling upon United States President Barack Obama to demonstrate decisive leadership to avert a climate catastrophe during the UN General Assembly focusing on climate in New York on September 22.
