28th November 2010: Sing for the Climate

The Belgian Climate Coalition is inviting people from across Europe to “Sing for the Climate” in Brussels on 28th November.

The Belgian Presidency of the EU in the second half of 2010 is an opportunity to bring activists from across Europe to Brussels to send a clear signal to the EU that we expect it to take a strong and just position in the UN negotiations in Cancun. In 2009, the Belgian Climate coalition brought 15,000 people onto the streets of the EU neighbourhood for a “climate wave” event. This year, the coalition wants to do something a bit different, and make a giant choir to “sing for the climate”. This builds on the successful mobilisation for the Dance for the Climate in summer 2009.

The strong involvement of the Belgian Trade Unions in the climate coalition also allows the mobilisation to focus on social justice issues, and could be a way of mobilising trade union activists around Europe to take similar initiatives in other national climate coalitions.

There is a possibility that this event will be able to showcase some of the climate justice testimonies collected by groups from around Europe.
