Voices from Bolivia and Venezuela on the fight for climate justice after Copenhagen featuring Pablo Solon, Bolivia's representative at the United Nations, lead spokesperson on climate change at the Copenhagen Summit, and Federico Fuentes, a participant in the revolutionary process in Venezuela and writer, on Sunday, March 7, 2010 at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.
Denmark is the home of renowned children's author Hans Christian Andersen. Copenhagen is dotted with historical spots where Andersen lived and wrote. The Little Mermaid was one of his most famous tales, published in 1837, along with The Emperor's New Clothes.
As the United Nations' climate summit, called "COP 15," enters its final week, with more than 100 world leaders arriving amid growing protests, the notion that a binding agreement will come from this conference looks more and more like a fairy tale.
Outside, Copenhagen has been transformed into a vibrant, global hub of climate-change activism, forums and protest planning. In one square, an ice sculpture of a polar bear melts day by day, and an open-air exhibit of towering photos displays "100 places to remember that will disappear."
