Bonn, Germany, June 7, 2011

The Climate Action Network (CAN), a coalition of over 600 NGOs worldwide, gives out the 'Ray of The Day' award to the countries who are a ray of hope over the past days of negotiations at the UN climate change conference.

The awards given out on June 7, 2011 in Bonn, Germany were as follows:

The Ray of the Day to AOSIS for their spirit of constructive participation. They provided a concrete proposal to move the KP negotiations forward particularly in light of the decidedly uninspiring progress elsewhere. We would like to encourage other parties or groups to follow the example AOSIS has set in being solutions oriented. As AOSIS reminded us today, we cannot afford to talk in circles when there is so much to lose.
