PRESIDENT NASHEED VISITS ‘VULNERABLE’ EXHIBITION

President Mohamed Nasheed visited VULNERABLE, the exhibition on climate change organised by Bluepeace, at the alternate climate summit Klimaforum09 in Copenhagen on Tuesday. The exhibition showcases the vulnerability of the Maldives to climate change, using images from talented photographers from the Maldives.

A day earlier President Nasheed visited Klimaforum09 for a Talk along with Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org. McKibben explained the science behind the number 350 and its significance in the climate change debate and stressed 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 Klimaforum09.
