Boston Underwater Festival - 10/24

10/23/2009 12:10:00 AM


Concerned about global warming? Want to meet up with others that share your concern? There's going to be an event going on this weekend at Christopher Columbus park to raise awareness

On Saturday October 24, hundreds of people from around the Greater Boston area will gather for the Boston Under Water Festival on Boston’s water front, an event to raise awareness about the threat that Katrina-like flooding poses to the city if action is not taken to stop global climate change.

Participants at the tongue-in-cheek event will wear goggles, snorkels, life vests and other aquatic props, and the event will culminate in a photograph of hundreds of people posing for a human-and-sandbag “sea wall”. The event is one of more than 2,000 actions in over 150 countries to call on President Obama and other world leaders to secure a fair, ambitious and binding global deal in Copenhagen this December at the UN Climate Change Conference.

WHO: Organizers include the 350 Massachusetts Coalition, Greenpeace USA, the Somerville Climate Action Network, Massachusetts Powershift, the JP Greenhouse, the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston, The Williams Agency and the Mass Council of Churches.

WHAT: Tongue-in-cheek climate festival to draw attention to Katrina-like flooding that Boston will face if action is not taken to stop global warming.

WHEN: 3:00 p.m., October 24th, 2009

WHERE: Christopher Columbus Park, next to the Aquarium T stop.
