International youth delegates in Bonn at the United Nations Climate Talks engage in a football match. The match had a specific set of rules to highlight the inequity between the north and the south in these talks. The blue shirts represent the Northern, developed nations and they vastly outnumber the southern representatives. The North was allowed to cheat and hold secret meetings while the south was prohibited from scoring and forced to quickly explain complicated acronyms. This action highlights the overwhelming disparity between the northern interests and the soutern interests.(©Robert vanWaarden)
