You’re Invited: HUMAN COUNTDOWN – A Climate Wake Up Call In NYC
by Eva Erbskorn
September 4, 2009
As world leaders prepare to meet at the United Nations in New York on September 22nd to discuss the urgent issue of climate change, Greenpeace and other groups are working on an event to show these leaders that time for action is running out.
On September 20th, thousands of citizens from all walks of life will gather for a creative action in Central Park a Human Countdown. This international media photo opportunity will demonstrate to these world leaders that the time to act is running out and call for necessary steps by President Obama and others to bring about a new climate deal.
To join us in Central Park: RSVP
This is a critical time climate change is happening right now. Our world leaders can choose a safe and stable climate, or they can choose more natural disasters, famines, and climate refugees. It is imperative that world leaders agree on a global climate deal that is fair, ambitious and binding in December 2009 in Copenhagen.
The Human Countdown is the flagship event kick starting the Climate Wake Up Call, a series of coordinated events happening around the world.
WHEN: Sunday, September 20th @ 1:00 PM
WHERE: Trump Wollman Ice Rink, Central Park
Best Entrance: Central Park South (59th Street) and 6th Avenue. Wollman Rink is a two minute walk into Central Park from this entrance. Follow the footpath directly into the park.
See you there!
