I was searching for a way to combine my background in environmental policy and sustainability with, what else but…. shopping!
On any given weekend in Los Angeles you will find volunteers from Animal Advocates Alliance (AAA) holding an adoption event.
Today is my last day in Copenhagen, this is my last COP15 blog and today I went to take my last blog photo.
I cannot tell a lie. When Terry Tamminen, the fearless leader of Seventh Generation Advisors, my boss, and a hero of mine both professionally and personally, told me he would not be able to attend COP15 I was devastated.
I had to hunt around my hotel room this morning to find my badge for COP15.
Last week, this badge was a highly coveted piece of paper attached to a UNFCCC lanyard.
Today was a pretty crazy day in the world of international climate negotiations that ended at a cocktail party at the Ambassador’s house where the real Arnold was spotted.
I was wondering where they were. I had been in Copenhagen for a week and there was no sign of them. And then, after an early morning walk down to the water, I turned the corner and there they were. The protesters. The skeptics.
It has been a challenge here in Copenhagen to find a meal that does not involve a sausage wrapped in bacon (seriously – that seems to be a popular culinary treat), something to do with rare roast beef, or a sauté of a hoofed or winged friend from the animal kingdom.
I spent today hanging out with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Well, to be a bit more precise, I spent the day hanging out with a life size, cardboard cutout of the movie star turned Governor of California.
I know my way around Copenhagen after only a few days here – which I consider an accomplishment for someone who is directionally challenged.
