On June 6, 2015, starting in the Pacific region and ending on the west coast of America, thousands of citizens reflecting the demographic diversity of their country will participate in the global citizen consultation, World Wide Views on Climate and Energy.
The participants will be invited to express their views on 30 questions, after having received unbiased information material and debated with fellow citizens.
The results will be made available online through a user-friendly interface. A summary for policymakers will be presented on June 15.
Prior to and during the COP21, partners in the World Wide Views Alliance (responsible for organizing the national citizen consultations), strategic partners and citizens, who participated in the debates, will present the results at the local and global level.
This project directly supports the implementation of Article 6 of the UNFCCC, which, inter alia, aims to enhance public awareness and promote public access to information on, and public participation in, climate change policy-making and action.
