Ok, well, maybe not. I'll be enjoying Copenhagen's two weeks of events from afar and hoping for a collective direction on climate solutions. But the See You in Copenhagen ad campaign sponsored by the UN Foundation give you a sense of the momentum going into the Conference.  See You in Copenhagen is a campaign of short films and ads produced by Found Object Films, in cooperation with the UN Foundation and tcktcktck.org to raise public awareness and support civic engagement in advance of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 15) in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In the video featured above, Shai Agassi, founder and CEO of Better Place, introduces us to the prototype electric vehicles that will be part of the sustainable transportation infrastructure his company is building to replace the world's dependence on conventional fossil fuels. He speaks of the importance of the world agreeing to carbon cuts, and his company's potential role in creating the technology that will help move transportation away from carbon emissions.  Read more about the business model of Better Place from Earth2Tech and from Better Palce's website.
