‘COP-ing on’ to climate change

Self Help AfricaClimate Change, News, Video

Festival goers at Electric Picnic gave world leaders a message to “COP on” to climate change, when they took part in a video project organised by Gorta-Self Help Africa at this year’s end of Summer music extravaganza.

The video project gave concert-goers the chance to share their thoughts on global warming,and urge our politicians to reach a deal on climate change at this year’s annual COP21 summit in Paris. Our message is that the people who are least responsible for climate change (Africa’s rural poor) are the people feeling the worst effects of global warming in their lives.
