Bolivia Expects Large Attendance to Climate Summit

La Paz, Feb 24 (Prensa Latina) Bolivia expects that a vast majority of countries attend the World People”s Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth”s Rights, Deputy Environment Minister Juan Pablo Ramos said on Wednesday.

  In statements to Prensa Latina, the also Biodiversity and Climate Change minister was convinced that the event scheduled in Cochabamba on April 20-22 will serve to mobilize the masses in protecting the planet.

The summit will be attended by social organizations, indigenous people, activists, experts, scientists and institutions involved in protecting the Earth.

Beyond a specific event, “we try to achieve, through peoples’ conscience, to press developed countries to change the large scale capitalist, consuming and pollutant model,” said the minister.

Ramos stated that the Summit’s official website is receiving a daily average of 1,600 visits, showing the colloquium will have a vast assistance of delegates.

The Copenhagen Summit last December was a categorical failure for some developed nations’ intention of imposing a Final Declaration that did not include the main issues under discussion.

As a consequence, developing countries, including the nations of the Bolivarian Alliance of the People of Our America, vetoed that document, and Bolivian President Evo Morales called for another meeting.
