International Day of Climate Action rocks the world

25 October 2009

As‘s International Day of Climate Action winds down, photos are continuing to stream in to the website, showing massive numbers of actions in countries all over the world.  Photos range from a single woman standing in the Ishtar Gate in Iraq to a circle formed in front of the White House.

The day of action even got heads turning in New York City’s Times Square, where electronic billboards were shining 350 for the world to see.  (more Times Square footage here)

In addition to taking over Times Square, the day of action also seems to have taken the media by storm as well.  Google News listed the event as its number one news story for a good portion of the day, the New York Times featured a slideshow and story on the front page of its website, CNN ran a story, ABC ran a story that was picked up around the world, etc etc etc.  In short, the world took notice.

As the sun sets on the amazing day that was October 24th, eyes are turning to Barcelona, where the next UNFCCC negotiations will be taking place, November 2 -6.  Stay tuned to ECO-digital for updates from Barcelona.
