Barcelona climate curtain raiser
I've been since Friday in Barcelona where I'll be staying all week for the Climate Negotiations. The Tcktcktck campaign asked me to organize their secretariat and help coordinate their activities at this session.
Little more than a week ago I thought it would be cool to bring 1000 alarm clocks all set to ring before the start of the meeting, to wake up the negotiators.
It was a great curtain raiser to highlight civil society organizations' demand for a fair, ambitious and binding treaty in Copenhagen.
I'll pass on all the logistical nightmares (which explain in part why Chez Rémi was silent for a week), but thanks to the great team we've got here it all worked out fine this morning.
