…a People’s Climate Summit?
From November 3-7 we gathered in Bonn at the People’s Climate Summit to advance our movements and solutions for climate justice. We want a transition towards a society based on caring for the planet and for each other – not on exploitation. Our conference was a space for networking and exchange that inspires and strengthens our work for climate justice.
On November 3- 5 there have been three evening events, where key issues have been explored: Global Climate Justice (Friday, 3 Nov), Leave it in the ground: ending the age of fossil fuels (Saturday, 4 Nov) and How do we work towards transition? (Sunday, 5 Nov). Speakers from the South and North presented their perspectives and debated with the participants and with us.
At more than 50 workshops (Nov, 6-7) have been debates about how to put a social-ecological transition into practice; they highlighted the global struggles for climate justice; there have been space for skill-sharing and networking between initiatives.
