Greenpeace will hold it’s Global Day of Action (GDA) on December 8, 2007. This will be a global public initiative to address what many are considering the gravest threat we are facing today, climate change. This year, people and organizations around the world will highlight the Conference of Parties/Meeting of Parties (COP/MOP) on the Kyoto Protocol that will happen in Bali, Indonesia this December 2007.
In the Philippines, Greenpeace has been pushing the passage of the Renewable Energy Bill as the first decisive step of the Philippine government in honoring the Kyoto Protocol and ensuring the use of safe and cleaner energy sources. And Greepeace Philippines is asking for your help. It is in this light that Greenpeace is inviting your school or organization to be a part of the GDA on December 8, 2007, Saturday at 7:00am at the
University of the Philippines, Diliman Academic Oval Quezon Memorial Circle. With more people, groups, organizations, and schools, the call to address climate change will have a louder voice to encourage a better, more climate-friendly future for our country and the world. We encourage all participants to come in their creative outfits, costumes, parols or hats that signify renewable energy. December 8, also known by Catholics as Immaculate Conception Day which is also a holiday in some predominant Catholic countries like the Philippines thus attending the event should have no conflict with other schedules.
I received this call to action from a forwarded email by Miko Alino, Public Outreach Unit of Greenpeace Southeast Asia through an email from an online community. Parties interested in joining the event in the Philippines can contact Beng Ong of Greenpeace Philippines or fill up the form here. Please pass this blog post to anyone you may think may be interested.
