Today, world leaders, activists and students will be converging in Bali, Indonesia for the United Nations Conference on climate change. The conference comes on the heels of the UN high level meeting held in New York, September 2007, where global voices environment covered some of the discussions that sought to build up momentum to the current Bali talks. During the meeting in New York, there was near unanimous agreement that climate change is a pressing global issue which requires global action and commitment.
As the talks commence and a successor to the Kyoto protocol is hashed out, Global voices environment is highlighting the thoughts of bloggers around the world on the issue of climate change. Their opinions and suggestions for solutions to the climate change problem will be highlighted this week. What do they make of the politics surrounding climate change? Are they optimistic about the negotiations in Bali? From these global talks, what is relevant to their localities? To this end, Global voices has created a special coverage page whereby live feeds from environmental bloggers around the world is aggregated. This page will also include links to GV environment's detailed coverage of blogger's writings.
In addition to Bali 2007 coverage, Saturday December 8th is designated as Global Day of Action Against Climate Change. Demonstrations are planned around the globe by the global climate campaign, and we hope to cover citizen media reporting on what is going on in each country.
