The Global Wake-Up Call Is here!


On 21 September 2009, at more than 2600 events in 135 countries across the globe, we joined together to issue a deafening wake-up call to world leaders on climate change. The breadth and creativity of events is breathtaking, and our message broke through to leaders and international media. Watch the video of highlights, then post a comment to the live blog below!

Click video to watch - made by Avaaz, Mighty Pictures and Found Object Films.
Note: A 30-second version of this video aired at the Sept 21-22 Age of Stupid premiere, for a worldwide estimated audience of 1 million!
