7.00am meet-up at Makati City Hall Foyer (Old Buildling)
Take off to go to US Embassy and Embassy of Sweden to visit officials and remind them of their pivotal role for the fight for climate change measures at the Copenhagen Summit.
The Bike Rally, spearheaded by Greenpeace and OxFam, will ask the US and European Union to act to halt gloal warming and climate change.
"The world's leaders meet at the end of 2009 in Copenhagen to determine the fate of the climate. They could set us on the path to a deep emissions cuts or they could lock the planet into catastrophic, irreversible climate change. "
The success of the Copenhagen Summit will be measured by the following demands being met:
* Developed countries, as a group, must reduce emissions by at least 40% by 2020 (from 1990 levels)
* Invest $140billion a year for developing countries to adapt to climate change, switch to renewable energy and stop deforestation
Those who are free on that day, please do join the ride. Non-motorized Transportation (NMT) is part of the solution to climate change. Greenpeace's Francis dela Cruz affirmed that the NMT agenda will be included in the future campaigns/press- releases related to the Copenhagen countdown. Let's support this ride. We expect to finish on or before noon.
