Dates: 21 – 25 April 2018
Place: Paris, France
The Conference and Open Forum took place in from April 21 to 25 and it was hosted by CCIVS in Paris, France. The Conference invited partners of the IVS for Climate Justice project from around the world and the experts that would be providing trainings.
The international conference’s main intention was to provide the various organisations present with the useful and necessary information and tools to carry out their respective projects over the coming years relating to the IVS for Climate Justice programme.
With the presence of the experts who would lead the workshops and the impact measurement, the event allowed for a rich exchange among the consortium as they agreed on a common way of cooperation, shared information about their local projects as well as common challenges and good practices.
The participants were extremely satisfied with the conference as they believe it brought energy and life to the IVS for Climate Justice project. It was also fascinating for the participants, coming from every corner of the globe, to have been able to participate in this conference together as it demonstrated, regardless of the differences between their countries, that they all share a common goal.
