5th Dialogue Banner

Climate Change Education and Training, and International Cooperation on these matters
15 and 16 May 2017, World Conference Center, Bonn, Germany

Background: At COP 18 the Parties adopted the pdf-icon Doha work programme on Article 6 of the Convention and requested that the SBI organize an annual in-session Dialogue on Article 6 of the Convention in order to enhance work in the areas of climate change education, training, public awareness, public participation, public access to information, and international cooperation on these matters. This decision reaffirmed that the thematic areas of Action for Climate Empowerment are vital to achieve the ultimate objective of the Convention, and for the effective implementation of adaptation and mitigation measures.

Objective: The objective of the Dialogue is to provide a regular forum for Parties and other stakeholders to share their experiences, good practices and lessons learned, and exchange ideas regarding the implementation of Action for Climate Empowerment.

Organization: For the purpose of organizing the Dialogue, the six elements of Action for Climate Empowerment are clustered into two focal areas, the consideration of which alternates on an annual basis. The first focal area consists of education and training, while the second focal area consists of public awareness, public participation and public access to information. International cooperation is considered a cross-cutting theme of both focal areas. The 5th Dialogue on Action for Climate Empowerment will be held during SBI 46 and will focus on the first focal area.

Methodology: The 5th Dialogue will be organized in two sessions which will each focus on one thematic area with international cooperation being discussed as a cross-cutting theme. Both sessions will include presentations on good practices and lessons learned followed by working-group discussions. The Dialogue will seek to inspire and energise participants through inspirational speeches and presentations.

  • Session I: Climate Change Education and International Cooperation on this matter, 15 May 2017 15:00-18:00
  • Session II: Climate Change Training and International Cooperation on this matter, 16 May 2017 15:00-18:00

Participation: The Dialogue will be open for participation by Parties, representatives of relevant bodies established under the Convention and relevant experts, practitioners and stakeholders. The Doha work programme specifies that key stakeholders include intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, in particular women, indigenous peoples and youth-focused organizations, the private sector and the media.
