The People’s Micro Climate Change Conferences
Eric John Olson, Salty Xi Jie Ng, and The Green New Real
We are launching The People’s Micro Climate Change Conferences as the first in a series of prompts and participatory projects where we invite people to use their creativity to address the larger contexts of climate change and The Green New Real.
In response to the cancellation of the 2020 United Nations Climate Change Conference as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the failure of our nations’ leaders to follow through with the Paris Agreement, we are calling on people from around the globe to host their own “micro climate change summits” with friends, lovers, family, coworkers, and neighbors. It is our hope that these group climate agreements may serve as accessible roadmaps for people to organize around, and as blueprints for elected officials and private sector decision-makers to find their way towards a less carbon-heavy future for all.
