People’s Assemblies on Climate Justice
Posted by ccjn on October 15, 2010
The next major round of UN climate negotiations will be held in Cancun November 29 to December 10. The last one in Copenhagen failed miserably.
This past summer has seen severe wildfires in Russia, devastating floods in Pakistan, mudslides in China, droughts in the Sahel and Niger, and an 87-square-kilometre chunk of ice break off from Greenland.
Why wait for governments to take action?
It is the collective voice of people that can help make climate justice a reality.
This is why the Council of Canadians joined by the Indigenous Environmental Network, KAIROS and the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition have endorsed a call to action for hosting People’s Assemblies on Climate Justice during the Cancun negotiations.
People’s Assemblies on Climate Justice are movement-building and organizing events. A gathering of people that will transform awareness into action through climate justice actions in your community.
