Projects

The mission of La Ruta del Clima is to promote public participation and human rights in climate change governance. Our projects focus on  the governance of climate change and sustainable development. We believe that people are an essential element to increase the ambition and effectiveness of climate actions. It is our right to participate in the decision-making processes of climate change.

Our mission is fulfilled by the development of research, activities with citizens, advocacy in national and international decision-making processes and planning, generation of content for media, training, awareness, education, and others.

In addition, we carry out educational activities and capacity building for citizens and organizations. The transversality of the topic and the preponderant use of social networks and internet by the Latin American community, generate a window to transmit these messages in an efficient and interactive way.

Research Project:

Human Rights and Public Participation in Climate Actions

Public participation and human rights are intertwined in the Paris Agreement to ensure its transparency, fairness, and effectiveness. In this context, La Ruta del Clima is developing a research project on citizen participation and human rights in climate governance. This project is led by our colleague Adrián Martínez who has received the support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in the framework of the International Protection Fellowship for Young Climate Experts.
