'Let’s turn Copenhagen into Hopenhagen'

hopenhagen-campaign“Let’s turn Copenhagen into Hopenhagen” is the call to action from website Hopenhagen.org,which has created a global petition urging world leaders to attend and support the COP15 conference, and to reach an agreement regarding carbon emissions and climate change.

From the website:

Hopenhagen is a movement, a moment and a chance at a new beginning. The hope that in Copenhagen this December – during the United Nations Climate Change Conference – we can build a better future for our planet and a more sustainable way of life. It is the hope that we can create a global community that will lead our leaders into making the right decisions. The promise that by solving our environmental crisis, we can solve our economic crisis at the same time.

Hopenhagen is change – and that change will be powered by all of us.

Hopenhagen is a movement generated by the International Advertising Association representing the global advertising indutry in support of the United Nations.

Why Act?

Change will not happen unless the people demand it. That’s why Hopenhagen exists – to give you a rallying cry and the tools to demand a positive outcome in Copenhagen. Signing the UN Climate Petition is only the first step. We need your help activating Hopenhagen in your communities, so the movement grows. This needs to be a people’s movement, with enough people involved that our leaders can’t ignore it.
