United Nations Climate Change Conference - COP15 - Copenhagen, Denmark

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference , the Fresh Air Center has acted as basecamp for many media people and NGOs, accredited and unaccredited alike. Situated near the Bella Center in Copenhagen, the Fresh Air Center is a part of TckTckTck , a global campaign platform designed to bring climate justice organizations together in solidarity. This center acts as the main news hub so that the rest of the world can be connected and informed of the negiotions in real time.

FOR GRANVILLE MAG

Yes Men Punk Canada

The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark has been a flurry of activity, in the Bella Center with the negiotions, in the Fresh Air Center with the media and NGOs and in the streets with the marchs and protests. Each country brings to the table its own sets of concerns, contributitions and baggage revolving around carbon emissions and climate control. Canada has been no exception this rule, yet has been thrown into the not so positive spotlight by the culture jamming activist duo called the Yes Men .

There’s a ton of interesting stuff going on inside the negotiations at the UN Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen but there is also a ton taking place on the streets. Those of us working here are a lil worried that the stories you may be seeing on TV aren’t an accurate portrayal of what’s actually taking place over here.

Yeah, the police cracked down on protestors with unwarranted brute force… and I was caught in the middle of it… but there are other stories too. For instance the 100,000 protestors on braved the streets for a peaceful candellight vigil despite freezing temperatures and an over-eager, riot-ready, police force.

The streets are old school, beautiful, and shockingly car-free! People walk, bike, and take buses and trains everywhere. It’s very effecient. People walk in the streets, I’ve never seen traffic congestion, and its just generally one of the most human friendly places Ive ever been!
