The Danish Minister of Cycle Chic
Don't you wish all politicians looked like this? Dressed in casual, everyday clothes, complete with heels, for a 13 km bicycle ride through Copenhagen last Sunday.
This is our Minister of Climate and Energy, Connie Hedegaard. The hardest working politician in Denmark this year. Travelling around the world to generate support for the upcoming COP15 Copenhagen Climate Conference where we NEED signatures from world leaders to commit to climate change challenges. It didn't go so well in Kyoto in 1997 at first, with many main countries not signing the protocol.
In December 2009, the next major climate conference will take place here in Copenhagen and this time, commitment is much needed, thank you very much.
Oh, and a major dash of Cycle Chic wouldn't hurt, either.
