Save the Children cordially invites you to the launch of their new report:

FEELING THE HEAT Child Survival in a Changing Climate

Climate change is the biggest emergency for the world’s poorest children and it is happening now.

Without concerted action, millions of children will be at increased risk from disease, under nutrition, water scarcity, disasters, and the collapse of public services and infrastructure.

No one will be immune to the effects of climate change, but children under five will feel the brunt.

When: 11:00 am, 5 November 2009 Where: Barcelona Convention Centre, FIRA GRAN VIA Pavilion 8.

Who:  Alberto Soteres, CEO Save the Children Spain;
Rudolph von Bernuth,  Emergency Director;
Benedict Dempsey, climate change specialist

Save the Children speakers will be available for interviews in Spanish, English and Italian.
B-roll is available for broadcast outlets and high quality images are available for print outlets.
For more information and a copy of the report, please contact Sarah Tyler  +447958337624 or  Sarah.Tyler at save-children-alliance.or…
