Our voices for climate rights

Our voices for climate rights is an advocacy and awareness program on climate justice, human rights and the right of public participation in climate change decisions. People have a right to participate and this can lead to greater ambition and justice in climate action.

La Ruta del Clima is a Costa Rican non-governmental organization (NGO) that advocates for the right of civil society to participate in the climate governance process.  We are one of the few organizations in Central America to have sent a delegation to the U.N. climate change conferences every year over the last eight years. 

We raise awareness on key issues taking place inside and outside the negotiations through our advocacy actions and communications efforts.  Our advocacy efforts focus on climate justice, loss and damage and the need for actions of climate empowerment in Latin America.


Our voices for climate rights create spaces of dialogue, training workshops on climate change and human rights, host discussions on environmental justice and democracy, and have a team of advocates participating in the climate change conferences.

At a local and regional level, we empower to the public to claim their spaces to participate. At an international level we advocate, report, provide input and observe the international climate negotiations.

At the Climate Change Conferences, we host side events, track the negotiations and keep in touch with Latin American delegations and, keep the issue of human rights and public participation present at the climate conference. In addition, we cover the event through video and audio interviews, articles and news articles, radio programs, daily monitoring through social networks to major events, infographics, presentations, we also maintain a YouTube channel with webinars, interviews, and others.
