COP17 / CMP7

28 Nov

The 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 7th Session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties (CMP7) to the Kyoto Protocol, is currently being held in Durban, South Africa.

Safintra Roofing braved a windy Durban yesterday to shoot the “Baobab Tree”; an eco-friendly work of art sponsored by Siemens and Osram. The massive Baobab Tree will be donated to the eThekwini Municipality as a legacy project post COP17. The tree is 5m x13m in width and15m high with 8 large branches each measuring 7 metres in length. The tree is made out of recycled wooden pallets set against a metal frame with LED lights fixed to the branches which will be lit by night & day. Public will be asked to pedal on cycles located adjacent to the tree, in order to “light” the tree.

The Baobab Tree also forms part of the logo of the event.

Safintra Roofing welcomes delegates to our sunny country!
