Knowledge for Climate Action

Knowledge for Climate Action

Ratings: (0)|Views: 9 |Likes:
The Be the Movement workshop was an inspiring gathering of climate change activists, youth and concerned professionals. Five main needs on how to strengthen the climate action movement were identified and discussed: message for new audiences; empowering educators; innovating campaign strategies; considering costs; and leading for solutions. The workshop confirmed that urgent and bold action is required to tackle climate change. Participants recognized that the global climate change movement will be enhanced if they: a) increase collaboration and cooperation, b) recognize the intimate and unavoidable link between eradicating extreme poverty and climate change, c) emphasize early climate action to avoid high costs in the future, d) stress that mitigation will not hinder economic development, e) highlight that each and every individual can make a difference, and f) offer assistance for educators. Overall, the proceedings and recommendations serve as a pragmatic compendium of shared knowledge for climate action.
