KOFI ANNAN TO SPEAK AT CANNES LIONS

de Clerck-Annan-Jones.jpgKofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations, President of the Global Humanitarian Forum and David Jones, Global CEO of Havas Worldwide, CEO of Euro RSCG Worldwide and co-founder of One Young World, hold a crisis debate hosted by Hervé de Clerck (pictured left), Dream Leader, ACT Responsible & Founder of AdForum, at the 56th Cannes International Advertising Festival on the human face of climate change and the role that only the creative community can play in changing Climate Change to Climate Justice.
In June 2008, ACT Responsible started working for Kofi Annan's Global Humanitarian Forum and together with David Jones (pictured right), created a dedicated communications team working for Kofi Annan to raise awareness of human consequences of climate change all over the world. Kofi Annan, working in close co-operation with all the major non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the framework of the Global Campaign for Climate Action will call on the Cannes Lions worldwide audience to support this work.
"We hope to involve millions of people in a global movement for a fair resolution to the climate crisis" said Hervé de Clerck.
"This is vital because political leaders will stand up and act only if they feel there is strong public support" said Kofi Annan.
"The fundamental word is actually 'movement' rather than a 'campaign'. Because a campaign is something that you watch, whereas a movement is something that you join and are a part of" said David Jones.
