SOS – Save our Socks!
But what’s up with our socks??
People, our socks are in big trouble. We are all own socks, its a common factor - and hopefully you will agree that they are something we can all agree are worth protecting. :-)
Why are socks endangered?
1. Rising global temperatures? Our Socks will become obsolete.
2. Sea level rise? Our poor Socks are going to get wet first.
All Socks are uniting on Climate change (its not a left or right issue).
We have all experienced our Socks getting lost in the wash. Where do they go? They join the revolution. They become spokesocks for change. For the past 30 years, socks that have been put in the wash have escaped (often just the left one) and made a hikoi (Journey) to Copenhagen for the December 2009 Conference so they can collectively send their message – 40% emission reductions by 2020.
What can we do to help?
Give our socks a voice. Obviously, socks can’t talk. But if humans sew them into Sock puppets and sock monkeys we can get them to interview people, make little movies and upload them to You tube, take photos of them making their statements etc etc.
Everyone can get involved – because sock monkeys are dead easy to make, sock puppets even easier. People can really personalise them and go to town! Nanas and children and youth and 30 somethings will all be able to get into the crafty spirit.
its as simple as sacrificing (sockrificing) a sock to the cause! People who don’t make sock monkeys can just pop a note in their sock and send one to parliament and one to Copenhagen. It can take up to 30 years for a sock to make it to Copenhagen* under their own steam. We can simply pop one in an envelope with a stamp and get them there faster!
The socks will get put up on the fence outside parliament (we have a great kiwi tradition of shoe/bra/bike fences...) Its time to make a spectacle!
Socks of all kinds and colours will turn up in Wellington at the beehive, and the others will turn up in Copenhagen, and our pals there will do the same outside the building where the emissions consultation will be held.
This group does not have any discussions yet.
