Description: COP19 is another reminder of the urgent action needed to deal with climate change. There is overwhelming evidence that climate change is caused by human activity and that the world is warming. And yet, still not enough being done to mitigate the warming and adapt to its impacts. BE THE MOVEMENT is a workshop organized by CONNECT4CLIMATE in cooperation with UNIVERSITY OF WARSAW in parallel to COP19. It is an opportunity to represent your organisation, share your experiences, and help develop a strategy for boosting the global climate change movement. Help us answer the following questions:

  • What are best practices for climate communication?
  • What new technologies, mechanisms, social innovations and communication channels are available to drive climate action?
  • What are the most successful practices that have inspired collective behavioural change in the past?
  • What policies and actions should be promoted to identify effective climate solutions?

This workshop will bring together a variety of climate change professionals: educators, youth, civil society organizations, private sector representatives and CONNECT4CLIMATE partners. Together they will identify practical and useful strategies for igniting a more energetic, robust global movement to combat climate change. We invite you to submit a proposal to showcase your experiences and strategies in a short engaging Pecha Kucha style (20 slides for 20 seconds) presentation.
