The 24 Hours of Reality with Al Gore is fast approaching in a few days. News about Lucy's role in the event has been released and it looks very impressive.

Spanning 24 hours, 24 time zones and multiple languages, 24 Hours of Reality features a new multimedia presentation about climate change created by Vice President Gore and delivered by an army of personally trained slide show Presenters from around the world.

By focusing the world's attention on the climate crisis for an entire day, 24 Hours of Reality is intended to create a global movement and inspire international action to solve the climate crisis the other 364 days of the year. At each event, we will highlight the projects and initiatives of incountry organizations and NGOs and offer information and opportunities for people to learn more and to get involved with ongoing activities in their own communities. This global discussion will lead to action to solve the climate crisis.

Lucy will be doing a 15 minute intro on the New Zealand portion according to Unitec. Read below for more:
