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. 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.
