GUIDE TO THE NEGOTIATIONS
On climate change for the citizen
In the years to come, despite the increasingly worrying realities and the repeated warnings of a growing number of actors (scientists, representatives of the public, private and civil society sectors), it is clear that The crises facing our societies are only intensifying. Man is faced with an urgency to act in the face of increasingly complex and increasingly complex challenges, not to mention the consequences of climate change that exacerbate the unmanaged challenges of the past and present, today. In this context, 2015 appears to be a pivotal year for the future of humanity, including the entry into force of the Sustainable Development Goals and the next 21st
Conference of the Parties (COP21 or COP21, Conference of the Parties) on climate change to be held in Paris in December 2015 and which will culminate in the signing of a new international agreement on climate. Time is at stake and, more than ever, the stakes of sustainable, equitable and inclusive development must be a priority for all of us.
2015, it is also a unique opportunity for everyone to reappropriate the reality of what our societies have become and to rewrite a new page of this adventure that we must, at all costs, conjugate with several hands to give it a registered meaning in the time. In other words, this is neither more nor less than the biggest challenge facing our societies and a great opportunity to collectively imagine and implement actions that will enable us to build a more equitable future. sustainable.
It is in this context and to put the citizen at the heart of the debate that the ENERGIES 2050 Association has conceived the project “I, citizen in PACA, I commit myself for the climate – Building a regional and Mediterranean climate citizenship”. This project is supported by the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region (PACA). The objective is to inform and sensitize citizens on issues related to international climate negotiations. This action is intended as a contribution to the collective construction for which many actors are already mobilized.
For ENERGIES 2050 this project falls within the broader framework of its interventions on issues of climate change, sustainable development or solidarity, be it negotiation itself, support for countries in the elaboration National strategies, concrete and duplicable projects, climate tools and capacity-building measures, here and elsewhere, in the fifty or so countries where ENERGIES 2050 and its partners are involved.
In other words, this project, this guide, the citizens’ charter or the associated citizenship contest, all demonstrate the same urgency to act, regardless of where you are. The territorial level is here a gateway to, from its proximity environment, open to the understanding of other territories, other constraints but also other opportunities to act.
