Countdown to Montreal

The next UN climate meeting begins at the end of November in Montreal, Canada.

The story so far

In the run up to the meeting Friends of the Earth has been lobbying politicians in the UK and internationally - to ask them to take firm action at the meeting.

Thousands of you have shown your support for the campaign by emailing Elliot Morley, UK Minister for Climate Change, and sending us your messages for the delegates.

Your messages

We will use all your messages to construct a huge wall - over 50 metres long and 4 metres high outside the conference venue in Montreal.

The wall will serve as a reminder to the delegates that the world is watching.
