Free online coverage of the Copenhagen Climate Conference
Monday 30 November 2009
The World Wildlife Fund is opening up the UN Climate Change Conference by promising up to six new videos and a live streamed event every day from December 7 to December 18, all available from their dedicated web channel called Inside Cop15 (cop15.panda.org).
Inside Cop15 is designed to cover the highs and lows of the potentially ground-breaking summit, with round-the-clock coverage and the latest news as it happens and to untangle the meaning of the next global climate change treaty.
Running alongside this is a Vote Earth initiative, which collects signatories for use as part of the WWF's presentation to delegates in Copenhagen, and a similar petition from TckTckTck, a global alliance of organizations such as the Global Humanitarian Forum, Oxfam, Christian Aid, and the Red Cross.
The WWF is also behind Earth Hour Copenhagen, a special instance of the annual Earth Hour initiative whereby citizens and companies pledge to turn off their unused lights and electrical equipment - though, of course, many choose to forgo electricity use altogether for the duration of the demonstrations - and the Copenhagen version is scheduled to take place at 7pm local time on December 16.
