Our voices for climate rights

Our voices for climate rights is an advocacy and communication program on 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.

Our voices for climate rights seeks to advocate for the right of public participation, create spaces of dialogue, training workshop on climate change and human rights, host discussions on environmental justice and democracy, provide easy to understand information about climate change governance to the Latin American public. This with the purpose of empowering, sensitizing and informing the public for it to take part in shaping a low emissions and sustainable society.

At a local and regional level we empower to 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.
