People’s Climate Summit, Bonn, Germany: 03-07 November 2017
November 2 - November 19
Starting on 3 November, thousands of people from across the world will converge in Bonn, Germany for action on climate justice. The People’s Climate Summit 2017 ending on the 7th November is an important space for social movements to act and put forward alternatives and solutions to capitalism and its global climate crisis.
Just in this year, we witnessed several disasters due to increased impacts of climate change, both in scale and intensity: hurricanes, floods, tropical storms, droughts, heat waves and more devastation in all the continents. The most affected are the world’s peasants, poor people, rural workers, fisherfolk and Indigenous peoples, especially women and youth among them. Tragically, many people have been uprooted from their homes and livelihoods and forced to migrate. We urgently call upon our allies, friends and social movements to galvanise their struggles towards a system change.
Therefore, during the forthcoming UN climate talks in Bonn (Germany) we will be on the streets pushing forward our peasant agenda, our true solutions and staying in solidarity with all climate change affected communities of the world today.
