Leaders From Front Line Communities To Speak Out
Against False Climate Solutions
Panel Will Center Marginalized Voices to Highlight Their Struggles and Amplify Grassroots Solutions
Location: Room 1, Area 4, IFEMA or via this link
Madrid – Thursday, 05 December 2019: Coopération Internationale pour le Développement et la Solidarité and the US Climate Action Network are hosting a panel discussion at COP25 to amplify the voices of front line communities across the Americas.
What: The impacts of climate change disproportionately hurt the most vulnerable communities, including youth, women, communities of color, income-challenged communities. At the same time, false energy solutions are impacting or bypassing some marginalized communities. Yet these same communities are often generating innovative, just and scalable clean energy solutions. Our panel speaks to both false solutions and community-based positive alternatives.
