Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
Be The Change will be in Copenhagen, helping to produce 8 hours a day of live coverage from the COP15 Climate conference. The broadcast begins today (Monday, Dec 7) at 5pm UK time, then will be on the air daily from 11am to 8pm. You can watch the show on the Be The Change website: http://www.bethechange.org.uk
The 7-19 December climate summit has been called 'the most important conference since World War II'.
The pioneering internet channel initiative has already attracted powerful global media supporters, including Skype, Justin.tv, The Guardian online, LinkTV, Yahoo! News,New America Media and Al Gore's Current TV. So what's so special about this channel?
'Two things,' says Anuradha Vittachi, founder of OneClimate.net, the campaigning action hub behind the new channel.
'Everyone is welcome to embed the livestream in their own website or blog for free,' says Peter Armstrong. 'We've produced this livestream collaboratively, by pulling together the best content from everyone, and it makes simple sense to us that the combined result should also be made available to everyone to use. This is the link to the embed code: http://www.oneclimate.net/embed-oneclimate-widgets-in-your-website/.'
'Indeed, we hope everyone will ripple this knowledge out further and further by passing it on to their friends and colleagues,' adds Anuradha Vittachi, 'so that everyone, everywhere, can take informed action. OneClimate's livestream is interactive, crowd-sourced and crowd-distributed. This is people's media playing its part in tackling climate change: climate media by the people, for the people.'
