A New Way to Walk the Talks – And Fabulous Prizes!

COP 16 will be the seventh Conference of the Parties since the Kyoto Protocol en­tered into force in February 2005. That’s a lot of talking. And the physical layout of these meetings means there is also a great deal of walking.

But, lack of progress in the negotia­tions shows that so far not enough gov­ernments are ‘Walking the Talk’.

To highlight this disconnect, Green­peace is hosting More Walk, Less Talk, a competition to find the person – and the country – that covers the most ground in Cancun. And there will be fabulous prizes!

As we all know, walking is very good for us – among its many benefits it is credit­ed with improving circulation, bolstering the immune system, and helping keep us in shape.

It is also, of course, good for the cli­mate.

So, the race to the future starts now. Grab your step-counter . . . reset . . . and go!

Get your pedometer from the Green­peace booth or Greenpeace representa­tives around the Moon Palace. Register at morewalklesstalk.org. Winners will be announced on December 10th.

And by the way – did we mention the fabulous prizes?
