A dialogue between climate & environmental activists, trade unions, peasants, women, indigenous, migrants, faith communities, indignados, OWS, Idle No More, activist from the Maghreb-Mashreq and others. In order to fight for our future we need to learn from our steps. Why climate negotiations have move backwards and what is going to be its impact in the región and all over the world. Climate negotiations in the UNFCCC have deteriorated into trade negotiations that are more concerned with promoting carbon markets than preserving nature. The high level climate summits of Copenhagen, Cancun, Durban and Doha have produced agreements that would not only burn the planet but they also agreed that polluters can keep polluting and that governments will not do anything until 2020 when it will be too late. What went wrong? What lessons should we learn to develop new strategies and build a common action plan? This multisectorial dialog will open the discussions in the Climate Space and highlight our goals to fight for our future.
