ActionAid today launched its CountDown to Copenhagen campaign to get schoolchildren’s voices heard ahead of the critical climate talks in Copenhagen in December and to encourage schools to join the 10:10 campaign.

ActionAid’s campaign is co-ordinating the schools arm of 10:10, the mass UK campaign which is asking companies, institutions and individuals to pledge a reduction in their carbon emissions of 10% in one year.

They are offering a free starter pack to help teachers explain what is at stake, ensure every child’s voice is heard and help get a good deal at Copenhagen.
