In this year’s Forum we will:
- Highlight examples of volunteer civic leadership;
- Share engagement strategies that anyone can use;
- Review efforts by civil society advocates to secure new protections and safeguards;
- Explore opportunities for expanding citizen participation in the UNFCCC process.
The Earth Day Citizens’ Forum will provide a background of peer-sharing, focused learning, and global policy-making context for the first CCI Week of Action, June 13-17. The Week of Action will be a global, hybrid event, offering volunteers the opportunity to:
- Schedule direct policy discussions with public officials;
- Spread their message in local media;
- Organize, if they choose, educational meetings in their communities;
- Connect with trusted leaders, to build political will locally;
- Engage in focused trainings to develop their volunteers’ skills.
