For the past 12 days, the world has been watching the COP15 in Bella Center as well as participating at The Peoples’ Summit at Klimaforum09. While the official COP15 has been divided between the West and the Global South, Klimaforum09 has included all participating countries in the upbringing of an ambitious declaration to secure the future of our planet.
This Friday, Klimaforum09 invites NGOs and interested people to a social gathering at Øksnehallen, where they can follow the final Blowout Klimaforum negotiations going on at the COP15.
