How far can you push a big inflatable globe on a road in Hua Hin, Thailand?
Several kilometers maybe? Today, we tried it today and covered all of 200 meters.
Today just happens to be the second day of the 15th ASEAN Summit taking place in Hua Hin, one of Thailand’s more famous resort towns.
Ten Southeast Asian heads of state are meeting inside Dusit Thani Hotel talking about issues such as regional cooperation, human rights, global economy, disasters, and climate change.
Today, incidentally, is also the International Day of Climate Action.
So we rolled a large inflatable globe on the road leading to the venue to tell the region’s leader to really get serious about climate change and push the world in the right direction!
Since Hua Hin was hosting ten prime ministers and presidents in town, security was unfortunately rather tight. We didn’t get to roll the ball all the way to Dusit. But–as with tens of thousands of people around the globe, we showed world leaders that there is a clamor for action to do the right thing and get a strong climate treaty going for December in Copenhagen.
What exactly is Greenpeace asking for? Read it here.
