Climate Change: Canadian Youth Delegation to Copenhagen
Wednesday, 02 December 2009

The world of climate action is heating up next week as the 15 Conference of the Parties descends on Copenhagen. This is a critical meeting to (hopefully) sign the post-Kyoto climate treaty.

35 Canadian young people are attending these negotiations to hold our government accountable and to ensure that Canadians have up to date information about how the time to listennegotiations are progressing, and what Canada's stance is.

As young people we have a enourmous stake in what happens at Copenhagen. The effects of climate change will be felt in our life times, and it the decisions that are made at this conference that will how severe those effects will be. As Canadians we need to stand together to send a strong message to our government that we want them to commit to world class reduction targets, and to be a leader at Copenhagen.

There are many ways you can get involved. Join our campaign, read our updates, and forward this email to your networks.

Together we can make a difference

Make Canada Listen!

Dear Friends,

In just 5 days, the world's leaders will meet to to negotiate the global response to climate change.  Your help has never been more important. Governments have been warned about the potentially catastrophic consequences if climate change is ignored. But Canada's government is still not listening.  Instead, it is trying to block international action and delay implementing effective policy solutions at home.

JOIN the thousands of concerned Canadians already united under the KYOTO-plus banner to end the federal political games which threaten the future of Canadians and the planet by signing the Kyotoplus  petition, which will be delivered to Canada's negotiators in Copenhagen, at http://www.kyotoplus.ca/ .

Our MPs need to hear from us that we we expect Canada to stop blocking progress and commit to ambitious binding targets at the upcoming negotiations.  Please contact your member of Parliament by phone, email or mail or in person.

This email is prompted, in part, by a recent article by George Monbiot, "Canada's Image Lies in Tatters", on Canada's role in the upcoming climate change talks in Copenhagen.  Monbiot argues that Canada's increased GHG emissions and failure to meet its international obligations have the potential to severely undermine the talks in Copenhagen.  The article has a chronology of Canada's participation in the talks and the effect of Canada's actions on other nations.
