Haringey's Copenhagen Climate Conference 2009

This year representatives from 170 nations will meet to decide the future of our planet. On 6-18 December the Copenhagen Climate Conference will produce decisions on how we are going to tackle climate change and manage our emissions once the Kyoto protocol runs out in 2012.

With a financial crisis and parliamentary scandal catching the headlines climate change seems to have been pushed aside in the media. Here in Haringey we have not forgotten about it!

We are planning two weeks of action in the Borough to coincide with the Conference. We want to raise awareness of climate change and make sure this important event is not forgotten, and we need to make sure as many people in Haringey know about this as possible.

The conference is the culmination of a year of negotiations where leaders try and reach a global strategy in meetings of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The London Olympics. A significant birthday. A turning point for the future of our planet.

Whatever 2012 means to you and to us in Haringey, pivotal decisions made now will dictate the future of our planet. Please do contact us if you have any events/ideas/help you want to add... and we will try to keep you informed about our plans for these important dates as we decide on them.
