Photo Friday: COP20 – Voices for Climate

The Twentieth Conference of the Parties (COP 20) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is happening in Lima, Peru since December 1st, 2014, which will end on December 12, 2014. It gathered about 15,000 people, who represent 195 countries and stakeholders, to negotiate and shape the contribution they will give to vastly reduce their carbon emission. It is a crucial step before reaching a climate change agreement in Paris in 2015. “Voices for Climate“, a platform that provides exhibition and interaction spaces for worldwide visitors, is designed to facilitate communication between different stakeholders and raise awareness about climate change surrounding the five emblematic themes: Forest, Mountains and Water, Oceans, Energy, and Sustainable Cities.

People around the world are starting to understand that climate change is not only real, but its impacts are imminent and will become more severe unless we make big changes now. They are struggling to come up with solutions as natural disasters, extreme temperatures, and water shortages threaten people and species everywhere. At Archangel Ancient Tree Archive, we feel that one solution is far simpler than most think.

Archangel Ancient Tree Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is the first organization in the world that locates and vegetatively propagates the world’s largest and most iconic trees. AATA is creating living libraries of old-growth tree genetics by cloning superior old-growth “Champion” trees through traditional and advanced horticultural propagation for the purpose of future research and functional reforestation.

We now have 2,000 Champion Coast Redwood cloned saplings ready to plant, but need your help. – https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/big-trees-big-impact
