Bolivia 's answer to UN summit

Celebrities and indigenous leaders discuss climate change at "people's conference".

    Environmentalists, indigenous leaders and celebrities are gathering in Bolivia this week for a self-styled People's Climate Change Summit.

    It is being billed as an alternative to the United Nations meeting last December in Copenhagen.

    Evo Morales, Bolivia's president, says he wants to highlight issues largely ignored by delegates in Copenhagen.

    Al Jazeera's Craig Mauro reports on the expectations for the conference being held in the Bolivian city of Cochabamba.
