Join The Wave to Spread the Word Before Copenhagen


The Wave at Stop Climate Chaos Coalition

This is a relatively benign stunt by the standards of the Stop Climate Change Coalition, which has stirred up excitement with a nude climate change calander and in the context of Copenhagen, where one group plans to get 10000 people arrested in a climate change protest. But it is cute, and fun, and certain to succeed at the intention to "drive traffic to the-wave.org.uk where people can find out how to get involved in the march, as well as spread the word to friends and family". So what's it all about? The Wave is a march on London, planned for 5 December, just ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. It is also a video-extravaganza at the Wave website. Everyone is invited to film themselves, and some friends -- or some animals, or inanimate objects, your imagination is the limit -- and submit a short video to the organizers of The Wave. The videos stream across the home page for a continuous, if not coherent, constant rolling wave.

Even if you cannot join the march in London, or if you will be active some other way ahead of the COP 15, make a short film and join the video fun. Can you get more people into your wave than the Co-op of Manchester? Can you think up a more creative wave than the lego-man wave or the pirate wave? A better animal angle than Poppy the waving pony, or Mr. Bear? Cuter kids than Amaya, Matilda, Jasmine or Sacha? And kudos to the bike-waver for showing us the way. Submit your video, the more the merrier!

And if you can join in the march, check out the site to learn more. The Co-operative is chartering trains and coaches from 21 locations across the UK to take thousands of its members and customers to London to take part in The Wave.
