The next UN Climate Conference (UNFCCC COP 22), taking place in November 2016 in Marrakech, Morocco, is being called the “COP of Action.” Now that the Paris Agreement on Climate Change is entering into force, world leaders are coming together to decide how to put this new global climate framework to work on the ground.
Here is where you come in! We invite you to make your voice heard at COP 22!
Research shows us that indigenous peoples’ and local communities’ solutions to climate change are some of the most innovative, most sustainable, and most effective.
Show the world that indigenous peoples and local community voices matter in climate action!
Your message will be incorporated into an interactive touch-screen world map that will be displayed at the “Indigenous Peoples' and Communities' Pavilion: Traditional Knowledge for Climate Action” during the entire duration of the COP 22 climate negotiations, from 7-18 November 2016. This Pavilion is a platform for indigenous peoples and local communities to have their traditional knowledge and solutions to climate change heard by government representatives, the media, partners and the global public.
