Pathway To Paris

Pathway to Paris

Pathway to Paris is a global organizing project aimed at building a working coalition of engaged partners, including citizens and other stakeholders, NGOs, multilateral institutions, scholars and leading policy-makers, to actively coordinate a strong and effective consensus agreement in Paris.

Pathway to Paris adapts CCE’s citizen empowerment model to this coalition effort, helping advocates, policy experts, and citizens, amplify their capacity and expand their reach.

Through UNFCCC climate conferences, World Bank meetings, and coordination of citizens’ efforts to engage their own elected officials, around the world, we are coordinating a global, policy-enhancing team effort.

We are doing this through:

• Direct Engagement Working Sessions, for citizens and stakeholders to directly input ideas and language into the process.

• Building a Paris Priorities Matrix, to allow for easy coordination among diverse partners from countries around the world. This document will serve to coordinate non-governmental efforts leading up to and inside COP21, so people of conscience can expand their reach, target their efforts, and improve the policy outcome in Paris.

• Facilitating creation of a Youth Draft Paris Treaty—a viable draft treaty, from youth around the world, that can serve as an effective agreement to restore the climate.

• Mobilizing new chapters, on every continent.

• Connecting volunteers to their representatives in the global process.

• Educating citizens, partners and policymakers about the Core Principles of the Pathway to Paris project.

• Forming a post-Paris network for direct citizen engagement, to succeed the Pathway to Paris project and ensure a lasting and meaningful role for citizens, stakeholders, young people and marginalized groups, in shaping global climate policy.
