Global_Wake_Up_Call_Toolkit_FINAL.pdfBecause the world needs to know. “On Monday, September 21, we’re getting together in public places all round the world for “wake-up call” flashmob events pressing our leaders to take action on climate.”

Sign up now to take part in the Pittsburgh global wake up call event. And bring your alarm clocks, because we need to really wake them up!  On the corner of 7th and Penn, at the plaza, hundreds of Pittsburgh activists will converge on sleeping leaders.

At over 1500 events world-wide, people will gather in public places in flash mobs. They’ll find each other by raising their synchronized alarms in the air (12:18pm, representing 12/18, the final day of Copenhagen negotiations). And then they’ll make phone calls to heads of state telling them to wake up and get serious about climate action.

In Pittsburgh, a sleeping Obama (US), Harper (Canada), Merkel (Germany) and others will be snoozing on the sidewalk, when they’ll get the wake-up of their lives with huge alarm clocks and a chanting crowd.

Come help! They are pretty deep sleepers!
