Sealing the Deal on Climate Change in Copenhagen

Seal the Deal Campaign at Dilli Haat

Delhi Greens and the Center for Climate Justice & Equity (CCJE) recently came together at Dilli Haat to take forward the Untied Nations-led Seal the Deal Campaign aiming to galvanize political will and public support for reaching a comprehensive global climate agreement in Copenhagen in December.

On December 7, 2009, Governments will gather in Copenhagen, Denmark to respond to one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. The main question will be how protect the planet and create a green economy that will lead to long-term prosperity. Reaching a deal by the time the meeting ends on December 18 will depend not only on complex political negotiations, but also on public pressure from around the globe.

With this understanding, the two day long stall at Dilli Haat aimed at informing people about the COP15 at Copenhagen and also raising awareness on the impacts of climate change the urgent need to take action today lest there may not be a tomorrow. People also signed the ‘Seal the Deal’ petition banner in large number.

The petition is basically a reminder to all that our leaders must negotiate a fair, balanced and effective agreement in Copenhagen, and that they must seal a deal to power green growth, protect our planet and build a more sustainable, prosperous global economy that will benefit all nations and people.

You too can participate and join this global call for a just and equitable deal in Copenhagen this December. Click here to Sign the Petition!

One thought on “Sealing the Deal on Climate Change in Copenhagen

  1. Public awareness campaigns like these are crucial in getting people involved in this global effort to make a change in the way we treat our environment. While the final decisions have to be taken by governments, people have a very large role to play in pointing the direction in which decisions need to be taken. We run Climatarians, a global sustainability directory which deals with all of these issues comprehensively.
