Yesterday a big number NGOs and the Federation of Young European Greens
(FYEG) walked out of the UN Climate Summit, which has a big lack of
progress. COP19 failed to be an inclusive dialogue between NGOs, states and
business and we regret that corporate interest prevailed.

Besides the UN Climate Summit, FYEG activists had an action in Warsaw
drawing the attention to the consequences of climate change, the need the
European Union to ensure the implementation of a better legislation on
climate change change issue, and of course our regret that corporate
interests prevailed at the COP19.
