President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives and Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org, spoke at Klimaforum09 on Monday. In a Talk hosted by the Klimaforum09 in the Orange Hall of DGI-Byen, McKibben explained the science behind the number 350 and its significance in the climate change debate and stressed on the significance of building a global movement to combat climate change.
“My message to you is to continue the protests. Continue after Copenhagen. Continue despite the odds. And eventually, together, we will reached that crucial number: Three-five-oh,” Nasheed said addressing environmental justice activists and members of civil society organisations representing various countries, gathered at the alternate climate summit Klimaforum09.
VULNERABLE, Bluepeace’s photo exhibition on climate change depicting the vulnerability of the Maldives, is also hosted by Klimaforum09.
