About Event

5 for the climate is an international exchange and networking week filled with interactive and informative sessions. We will pose the question if civil society is able to participate in climate policy making in a reasonable and meaningful manner. As civil society involvement is still not common practice, we need to learn from experiences and cases of success from around the world. We want to connect civil society organizations, think tanks and project implementers. In various working and networking formats, we will share our experiences with fighting climate change from a civil society perspective and we will develop strategies to secure civil society’s participation for more ambitious climate policies. "5 for the climate" is organised by Friends of the Earth Germany (BUND) in cooperation with the Independent Institute for Environmental Issues (UfU).
