Hopenhagen: Voice support for climate change online

December 17, 2009

Hope + COP15 = Hopenhagen. Hopenhagen is an interactive online platform driving climate change action, it includes the UN Climate petition, embeddable buttons, and an online store. Perhaps the most appealing feature is the interactive world map on which anyone can ‘pin’ a personal message of hope. Reading notes from virtually every part of the world creates the feeling of being part of a big, global community. As one of the notes says: “to see how many of us wishes the same gives me hope”. Another online way people can approach world leaders is by sending a ‘climate Greetings e-card’ through the official climate conference website. We hope that the demands for political commitment to tackle climate change are heard and that countries commit to real action on this critical issue.
