New York / Nairobi, 5 June 2009, The United Nations is leading a powerful new outreach campaign to encourage governments to reach a definitive agreement on climate change in Copenhagen from 7 to 18 December 2009. Titled "Seal the Deal!", the campaign is designed to mobilize political leaders, the business sector and civil society – including NGOs, community environment groups, youth and faith organizations – on a global scale to apply pressure for action to combat climate change.
The Seal the Deal! campaign provides a framework for global advocacy on climate change in 2009 and will include a series of special events and online activities which will build momentum in the lead-up to the crucial UN climate convention (UNFCCC) meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark later this year. For more information and to learn how you can participate, please visit the central campaign website: www.sealthedeal2009.org
