Attn: Friends of climate action – Flash Mob!

This Friday the 11th, at Noon, world leaders will still be sleeping on the watch while the climate crisis accelerates and the December UN Climate negotiations in Copenhagen grow ever closer. Join the noontime slumber party in the main hall of Union Station and set your cell phone alarm for 12:18PM when a chorus of alarms will jolt our snoozing leaders into action.

12/18 is the final day of the climate negotiations when the world needs a fair, ambitious, and binding global climate treaty to pass. We’re setting our alarms for 12:18 as a reminder of this crucial moment to the health the planet and the global economy.

[[ This action is a test run for a worldwide action on 9/21. We will be filming the action for an instructional video that will help people across the globe prepare for 9/21. ]]

who? — You and all your friends

what? — Wake-up call flashmob: join the slumber party snoozing and snoring while you stand, sit, or sleep however else you like; dress for business or for sleep, bring a teddy bear or a briefcase, blankie or suit coat; no costume required

where? — Main hall of Union Station

when? — Friday, Sept 11th.  Get their early (like around 12:00) and snooze. At 12:18 your alarm should go off.

then what? — Wake up at 12:18 (don’t forget to set your alarm) when your alarm goes off, hold it to the sky so world leaders get the message and get up and moving on climate negotiations. From there, we’ll assemble in the middle, finding each other by our phones, to make wake up calls to world leaders (in this case, US senators)

why? — World leaders are sleeping on the watch when we need them to be taking ambitious action to curb carbon emissions and provide the resources necessary for all countries to participate in the transition to a clean energy future.

See you at bleary-eyed noontime.

there’s a Union Station in Toronto which might cause some confusion. Or a another event?!
