With 3 days left of the crucial Copenhagen climate conference Avaaz.org, an independent, not-for-profit global campaigning organization, is aiming to put together the largest petition in history, in the next 72 hours. The petition for a real deal in Copenhagen already has a staggering 10 million supporters. An Avaaz team is meeting daily with negotiators inside the summit who will organize a spectacular petition delivery to world leaders as they arrive, building a giant wall of boxes of names and reading out the names of every person who signs.

"With the largest petition in history, leaders will have no doubt that the whole world is watching", the Avaaz team says.

Join the WWF's Earth Hour campaign tonight and turn off your light at 7 pm.

If you are in Copenhagen you can go to the Planetarium at 4 pm to make lanterns for the lantern procession. The singers Simon Mathew and Ida Corr will be performing in the Planetarium at 5 pm, and at 6 pm the lantern procession will walk through Tivoli and enter the town hall square (Hopenhagen) at 7 pm when Copenhagen turns off the light of the city.

In Hopenhagen LIVE the Globe will also be turned off and from the stage music and beautiful words will fill the darkness.

So come join the Coolplanet team and the rest of Copenhagen when we unite in darkness in a show of support for a brighter future.
