COP20 Fast for the Climate

Martin Kopp of the Lutheran World Federation is interviewed by Reuters TV on the eve of the first day of COP20, the UN climate talks in Lima. A Vigil for the Climate was held near the Pentagonito where the UN talks are to be held. Christiana Figueres, the head of the UNFCCC and Manuel Pulgar-Vidal the Peruvian Minister for the Environment and President of the UN meeting, spoke to the crowd and a symbolic lighting of candles began the celebration that marks the end of one year of monthly fasting by religious and environmental groups around the world in the Fast for the Climate.
