COP17: Working Together,Saving Tomorrow Today

The 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 7th Session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the parties (CMP7) to the Kyoto Protocol, will be held in the sunny city of Durban, South Africa, from the 28 November to the 9 of December 2011.

Global Day of Action

The Global Day of Action (GDA) is a traditional and important event at UNFCCC COPs. The primary action is a mass march of international and national community, labour, women, youth, academic, religious and environmental organisations and activists. It demonstrates civil society's common determination to address climate change.

Volunteers Needed

C17 is calling on participating organisations to provide volunteers for the Global Day of Action. The event will require marshalls, security personnel, medical practitioners (doctors and nurses), float builders, puppeteers, artists, performers, musicians and cultural activists. Volunteers will be organised, trained and coordinated well in advance of the march.
