Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

CoolPlanet2009 team visited the COP 15 conference in Copenhagen and decided to create a short video report to give our CoolPlanet2009 visitors a glance of what’s it like at the conference and hear the views of the conference participants.  

List of interviews:

Meet the COP15 green team

Bella Center, the COP15 conference venue, has been equipped with rubbish bins for recycling paper, plastic and organic waste, as well as water taps to encourage visitors to drink the Danish tap water rather than bottled water, to ensure that the event is as sustainable as possible. In place is also a team of friendly green advisors – the green team. Mette Lise Jensen, green team coordinator at COP15, tells CoolPlanet what it is all about.

“It’s our future that is at stake”

Hundred of young people from all over the world, representing a wide range of NGOs and networks, are present at the COP15 conference to put pressure on world leaders. Through song and dance, speeches, information sharing and networking they hope to get their message across. Charles Denson from the Cascade Climate Network and Chelsey Thaw from Washington State University  are both part of the Youth Climate Action Network . They told CooPlanet why they feel it’s important to take part in the event.

Scouts - always ready to help protect the environment

Environmental protection and awareness has been part of the Scout movement from the start. As the largest youth movement in the world with over 30 million members in 160 countries, the scouts play an important role in tackling environmental challenges and raising awareness about the issue.  Lucy Mae, head of the World Scouting Delegation to COP15 spoke to CoolPlanet about the importance of everyone being part of the solution.
