Climate change campaigners warn Copenhagen summit on brink of collapse

The TckTckTck climate change campaign has warned that the Copenhagen summit to stop the climate crisis is at risk of failing and that only massive public pressure can save it.

Over the year TckTckTck has been working with over 250 global NGO’s. Over 12 million people have already come together in nearly every country on earth to show their support for a climate deal.

Today, the world’s leaders have arrived in Copenhagen for an unprecedented 60 hours of direct negotiations. Experts agree that without a tidal wave of public pressure for a deal, the summit will not stop catastrophic global warming of 2 degrees.

TckTckTck’s partners have teams meeting daily with negotiators inside the summit who will organise a spectacular petition delivery to world leaders as they arrive, building a giant wall of boxes of names and reading out the names of every person who signs. With the largest petition in history, it hopes that leaders will have no doubt that the whole world is watching.
