The Defining Issue Of Our Time.
As founder of Get2Cop, Chris Long believes we are all stakeholders in climate change and must be part of the UN Climate Change Conference 2022 (COP27).
“The only way for us – the citizens of this planet – is to help bend the global curve of emissions right now”
Chris Long is best known as the founder and organiser of Sport Aid and Run the World. Over a period of 3 years from 1986 to 1988 he raised over US$50m and caused governments to cancel US$150m of debt to poor African countries.
He organised two global events – the first for the African famine victims of Ethiopia and Sudan and the second for UNICEF’s silent emergency. In total mobilising more than 50 million people in 110 countries and proving that both individually and collectively, ordinary people can affect the world in which we live.
