Update: Please note that the December 11 vigil has amalgamated with the December 12 vigil taking place at the Alberta Legislature 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm. The information below has been changed accordingly.
The weekend of Dec 11-13 marks the mid-way point of the climate talks taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark. To mark the occasion people around the world will gather in solemn solidarity with the nations and peoples for whom delay on climate action could mean extinction.
Edmontonians can mark the occasion on Saturday, December 12, from 5:30 – 6:30 pm with a candlelight vigil at the Alberta Legislature. It’s an opportunity to tell our provincial and federal governments that we need aggressive action on climate change, action that will take us back to 350 parts per million -- the number that scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.
