WeGovern Institute, Inc. at the People’s Environmental Conference

In 5 November 2015, the Institute partnered with environmental advocates in conducting a nation-wide “People’s Environmental Conference” ahead of the start of the 21st Conference of Parties (CoP21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The conference outcome outlined the perspectives, interests, and aspirations of grassroots, poor, and frontline communities in the climate talks, CCA, and DRRM. The outcome document entitled: “People’s Environmental Platform” was used as one of the references for the RTD and was also used as an advocacy tool by environmental advocates in the CoP21.
