CANCELLED: Copenhagen Climate Vigil

December 12, 2009 - 12:30am to 1:30am

Update: The December 11 vigil has decided to amalgamate with the December 12 vigil taking place at the Alberta Legislature from 5:30 - 6:30 pm.

The weekend of Dec 11-13 marks the mid-way point of the climate talks taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark. To mark the occasion people around the world will gather in solemn solidarity with the nations and peoples for whom delay on climate action could mean extinction. 

Edmontonians will mark the occasion on Friday, December 11, from 5:30 – 6:30 pm with a candlelight vigil at the Alberta Legislature. It’s an opportunity to tell municipal, provincial and federal governments that we need aggressive action on climate change, action that will take us back to 350 parts per million— the number that scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.
