'Your planet needs you! Together against climate change' was this year's slogan for the UN's World Environment day on June 5. In recognition of this Friends of the Earth El Salvador chose the day to begin their Second International Movement of Victims Affected by Climate Change meeting.
From June 1-12 2009, delegates from 182 countries were in Bonn discussing key negotiating texts which would serve as the basis for critical climate talks in Copenhagen this December.
Tom Picken, a campaigner for Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland urges delegates at the UN climate talks in Bonn to abandon carbon offsetting and look for real long term solutions to combat climate change.
