The EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL FORUM OF NGOs IN OFFICIAL PARTNERSHIP WITH UNESCO took place on the 7/8 December in UNESCO HQ Paris, entitled “Changing Minds, not the Climate”: The Contribution of NGOs.
CCIVS was part of theorganising team of the Forum charged with the overall planning of the event and the organisation of one of the Forums topics.
The Forum’s aim was to bring experts to share on the following topics: “The Role of Civil Society Organizations in Facing Climate Change”, “Ocean and Climate Change” and “World Heritage, Biosphere Reserves and Indigenous peoples’ Knowledge and Actions”. The Forum provided an important opportunity for NGOs to feedback on the UNESCO Strategy on Climate Change and to share how they can contribute to its implementation.
