The Global Campaign for Climate Action is an umbrella organisation, based in Montreal, which aims to coordinate many diverse environmentalist and science groups (including Greenpeace, WWF, Union of Concerned Scientists, Oxfam,, and many others) to focus attention on the need for an ambitious, fair and binding climate treaty at the Copenhagen talks in December. Their campaign leading up to the Copenhagen meeting is called TckTckTck, and it promises a bold series of actions over the next few months.

The first of these is next week: Global Wake Up Call (which nicely fits with the “sleepwalking into disaster” idea), and ties in with the premier of The Age of Stupid on Sept 21. The idea is to coordinate the sound of bells and telephones ringing around the world at 12:18pm on Monday, as the wake up call. There’s quite a few in Toronto – including one at Dundas Square. I’ve no idea if this flashmob style protesting works, but I guess there’s one way to find out. Anyone fancy a walk down to Dundas Square on Monday lunchtime?

Update: The Age of Stupid is being screened at the Royal Theatre on Monday night, 7pm.
