The V14 Summit as it was know, was held from 8th through 9th of November 2009 in Bandos Island Resort. The show included cultural acts including school girls and boys, accompanied by a traditional drummers and accompanying artists.
The V14 or the V11 was a pre-summit arranged for a carbon neutrality pledge, in preparation for the United Nation’s Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December 2009.
Prior to this, a huge cultural event was planned at the Republic Square (Jumhooree Maidhaan) despite very bad weather forecasts. The system was planned for sound to be reinforced in five-simultaneous zones. The whole gig was aborted just six hours prior to the performance and it got scaled down to the bar in Bandos Island Resort.
