We are joining Earth Hug Day this year to show our appreciation and gratitude to the planet. Earth Hug Day has been going on for several years now – in Germany since 2012 organized by young media specialist Kati and in Austria since 2010, by our austrian coordinator Thomas. This year, on the day when the COP20 in Lima is about to finish, we decided to join forces and make our Earth Hug so big that it can reach the political leaders all the way to Peru and show them how much we care for our home. There are things in life which money can’t buy, like a warm hug or being with the ones you love, let’s show that’s all we need for Christmas!

So  we are happy to announce that we are sending out this year a WORLDWIDE CALL on the 12th of December at 12h local time to:

START protecting our planet

STOP consuming

HUG people to share

From 1 to 12 of December will be held the 20th session of the Conference of the Parties or UN’s Climate Change Conference. The hopes are always high, but activists do not expect much from this year’s meeting. That is why we want to gather momentum by showing how much we, as citizens and human beings, care for our planet and that the only solution we have is to protect it.

Let’s show how much we love our home, let’s engage everyone we meet this day – on the streets, in cafe’s, shops, trains, etc. – in our common sign of Love – a big hearty HUG! 🙂
