Amplifying our Climate Justice Stories on a World Stage


COP27 LOGOThe United Nations Climate Change Conference 2022 (UNFCCC COP 27)  will take place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from November 7-18, 2022. More commonly known as the Conference of Parties (COP), the summits are held annually and bring together around 30,000 participants to negotiate policies, take stock of and celebrate commitments, highlight and catalyze action by non-Party actors, expand the network of coalitions and partnerships and inspire others.

COP HISTORY_History at COP



RAISING OUR PROFILE: 
COP 26 hosted a robust Blue Zone of companies, governments, and large advocacy organizations that featured a broad range of programming at their pavilions, but there was no space that centered climate justice, discussed equity within climate policy, or highlighted the stories and concerns of impacted vulnerable communities.  

The Blue Zone is where the majority of diplomats, policymakers, business, and professional advocates convene.  As a result, climate justice voices and perspectives are not heard by most of the influencers who are situated in the Bluer Zone.  Grassroots groups and activists who table and provide programming, host rallies, and convenings are usually in the Green Zone, which is geographically isolated from the Blue Zone.

Because of this segregation, a collaboration was developed to better integrate the Blue Zone by developing a safe space, an Climate Justice Pavilion where folks from the Global South, the U.S. Environmental Justice Movement, Indigenous People, and other international movements can dialogue on these issues, as well as;

  • share knowledge, strategies and tactics with each other
  • develop relationships that can provide substantive data and information that builds their capacity, and
  • attract the more mainstream attendees to learn, share their perspectives, and perhaps develop collaborations  and strategic partnerships that are mutually beneficial.

We are raising funds to support the design and construction of the pavilion; travel and lodging for 20-50 representatives of grassroots communities; Students of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs); staff support for managing logistics, travel, programming of the pavilion, and relevant research.

CURRENT DELEGATION:
