It’s all about being green: Spreading the word
Climate Reality Mexico and presenter Maria Ordonez were in the spotlight at the "Expo En Verde Ser" (Being Green Expo) last month in Mexico City. Maria presented for over 13,000 people from NGOs, business, government, and elsewhere in the hopes of sharing the reality of the climate crisis and committing to a greener future.
For the second year in a row, Climate Reality Mexico joined a committed group of NGOs, civil society groups, businesses, government agencies and others, in a call to the more than 13,000 people that attended to commit to being as green as possible.
This happened November during the Third Edition of an environmental expo called "Expo En Verde Ser" (Being Green Expo), which took place in the World Trade Center in Mexico City. The three-day Expo, supported by the Banamex Foundation, featured a Climate Reality Mexico booth where we handed out information about our activities and projects.
More than 250 people signed up to receive a presentation and to be informed about the Project's activities and ways they can be involved. On the closing day of the Expo, one of our trained presenters, Maria Ordonez, gave an amazing presentation using the new 24 Hours of Reality slide show.
We were also happy to have the support of a current rising star in the Mexican soap operas, Arap Bethke, who talked about the importance of becoming green and winning the conversation on the reality of climate change. He also signed autographs and took pictures with the attendees. In the end, as Arap said: "It's all in our hands and the time to act is now."
