We were heading into a briefing for civil society by UNFCCC head Yvo de Boer, when I noticed a gaggle of cameras and a crowd of conference-goers gathering a short distance from the auditorium entrance. I slipped out of line, and as I edged closer, I realized AOSIS (Association of Small Island States, a bloc of 43 countries) was holding a press conference to lay out the group’s negotiating position.
Today was my third day in wonderful Copenhagen, Denmark for the COP15 UN Climate Change Conference. The conference center is just so overwhelming, in a good way. There is so much awesome going on at once, it’s hard to take it all in.
On Thursday, we visited Copenhagen International School and gave a presentation to 120 6th-8th graders. The students were bright and engaged, and the level of awareness of the school as a whole was impressive. Check out CIS's greening efforts, and their incredible ability to include climate education into their curriculum. Thanks, CIS Staff & students for a great day!
Be sure to watch the video we made about our experience!
