I would like to tell you about a new project that Greenpeace has launched to send a message to a crucial UN climate change conference coming up in December. We have launched a collaborative video project, "Message in a Bottle": http://www.greenpeace.org/climatemessage. It's the first time we have done something like this. We were inspired by the Google Gmail video project.
The aim of the video is to send a clear message with a demand for "Real Action" to tackle climate change, at the UN meeting taking place in Bali, Indonesia, where governments will agree to their next round of emission cuts under the Kyoto Protocol. We are asking people all over the world to submit video responses to "Message in Bottle" to show delegates that the world is watching them, and expects nothing less than a clear mandate to tackle climate change.
We posted a short promo on youtube and we are now accepting video responses. We'll edit a selection of the best submissions together to make a final video, which will be delivered to the politicians at the conference.
More information about the project, and how to contribute is available on our Web site.
