This group of Brownies and Girl Guides joined in with YuFuGe day by making their own posters.
Rima Haddad, a WAGGGS delegates at COP15 in 2009 from Lebanon, sent us this image and message: 'Hope your action yesterday turned out to be awsome. I did mine with my Brownies last Saturday. We did both the freeze and the 'oouu it's hot in here' song during a book exhibition. It was productive and a lot of fun.'
