Facing the climate is a cartoon / comic exhibition @ Ikano from Oct 10-17th 2010. This event is held in conjunction of the Stockholm environmental conference. There are cartoonist from Sweden and Malaysia. I was invited by my friend Sheldon (one of the cartoonist from Malaysia) to attend this opening ceremony. This was a nice and simple exhibition/events to build the awareness of how important we need to conserve our environment.
As the theme is about global warming, go green, conserve energy etc... all the comics/cartoons that exhibit in this event was about saving environment... I managed to capture some pictures via iPhone during the ceremony.

The cartoon that drawn during the open ceremony by 7 famous cartoonist a.k.a the picture above was auctioned in the event. Guess how much this piece of art work sold? The starting price was RM500.
There is a board that encourage all of us to post our suggestion on how to contribute on saving the environment... I found the below two messages very interesting especially the first one...
