Seventy days ago, at the Climate Week Opening Ceremony in New York City, brilliant filmmaker, Gabriel London , released the short-film series, “See You in Copenhagen.” The films played to a crowd of climate legislation influencers United Nations policy leaders–including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Danish Minister of Climate and Energy Connie Hedegaard.
Through impassioned imagery, the films tell the stories of the real people–the innovators, entrepreneurs and UN Ambassadors–behind the Climate Change "policy puzzle." Simultaneously, the series highlights the urgent need for upcoming action on climate legislation.
Inspired, I joined Gabriel London’s efforts to call for action. First, I lent my voice to his series–literally by introducing and tracking three abridged episodes.
Watch the first episode here–explaining why small island nations, like Grenada, have so much at stake.
Though great, the series is "See You in Copenhagen." Now Gabriel and I are actually IN COPENHAGEN! The need for action is no longer "upcoming," but here and now. With said urgency, Gabriel and I have teamed up with Earthkeepers to bring you daily–from the ground reports–on anything and everything related to COP15. The events here–as they unfold before us–IN Copenhagen.
We’ll be here for the next two weeks of negotiations so be sure to leave your thoughts and suggested questions (for interview subjects such as green entrepreneur Shai Agassi and Nobel Peace Prize-winning scientist Stephen Schneider ) IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW.
Til tomorrow, signing out from Copenhagen.
Can’t wait to see what happens!
