Last month a colleague shared with me the death of a friend and fellow fundraiser. It was truly a shock that this vibrant, talented person had died.
Successful people I know in the nonprofit sector are passionate. Every day at nonprofit organizations staff, volunteers and Board members are changing lives and saving lives. Sometimes it’s hard, thankless work. But we aren’t working or volunteering in the sector for the thanks (or the pay).
The overall goal for the COP 15 meeting is to establish an ambitious global climate agreement for the period from 2012 when the first commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol expires.
For more than ten years this group has been talking about reductions in global warming, the Kyoto Protocol was signed by some but not all and Clean Development Mechanisms have reports since they began. It has been ten years – this must be the year they come to agreement and to be sure there is no gap when the Kyoto Protocol ends! Our voices are important to the outcome of COP 15 or another ten years will pass and the Earth will continue to suffer.
