An Evening of Climate Justice on tuesday with Bolivian Ambassador

Tuesday 2 November 2010

Bolivar Hall
54 Grafton Way
London W1T 5DL
(Nearest tube: Warren St)

Speakers include:
- Angelica Navarro, Bolivian Ambassador to the UN (Geneva)
- John Vidal, Environment Editor, The Guardian
- Keith Sonnet, Deputy General Secretary, UNISON
- Asad Rehman, Friends of the Earth

In April this year the Bolivian government hosted the first World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Called in response to the failure of the Copenhagen climate talks last December, it brought together thousands of people from social movements, civil society and governments from around the world to create a People’s Agreement on Climate Change, and discuss real solutions to the climate crisis.

Join us at Bolivar Hall to hear more about the Cochabamba climate conference, the current state of the global climate negotiations ahead of December’s talks in Cancun, Mexico, and the radical steps we need to take as an international movement to achieve climate justice.

Plus, in the context of the UK Government’s cuts agenda, find out what lessons there are from Latin America on how solutions to the financial crisis are not contradictory to real and fair solutions to the climate crisis.

FREE EVENT - No booking required

Supported by: Bolivia Information Forum, Campaign Against Climate Change, Climate Alliance, Embassy of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Friends of the Earth, Gaia Foundation, Green Party, Jubilee Debt Campaign, UNISON, World Development Movement
