Here is our schedule of events for the next few days, from today Friday December 11 through to Monday December 14, designated as Ocean Day at the COP-15.
Today we have plenty to do–organize an upcoming press conference for Barbara and Sven at the Klimaforum, hand out our postcards with the events on the back, and follow up with our many new contacts and allies who are helping us to bring awareness of the oceans to the fore.
These are our key events:
Saturday, December 12 – Ocean Motion dance party for the sea. To take place under a warmed tent near the Anton, the ship managed by the Danish Society for a Living Sea. Music by Ray Andres Band and a special guest DJ. The party takes place on Havengade, between the Greenpeace ship and the Anton. There will be glog, warm food, and giveaways. Time: from 8 pm to midnight.
Sunday, December 13 – Bike ride action – we want to ride to bring awareness about the oceans to the fore. We want every one to wear blue. We hope to provide blue ponchos or ribbons or strips of cloth or t-shirts, whatever works. The ride will start near the Anton (see above) and end at Radhusplausen. Time: from 1 pm
Monday, December 14 – Screening of A Sea Change. This is our last of four screenings. It will take place at the Klimaforum, the People’s Climate Summit, Green Hall, Onkel Dannys Plads 1 at 9 pm. Like all the others, this screening will be followed by a Q&A with Barbara and Sven and our special guests: leading researchers on the ocean and climate change.
If you’re in Copenhagen, please join us at one or all of these events. If you have any other ideas of actions that can be taken during the COP-15 to continue to make a commotion for the ocean, please let us know.
