The Declaration of NGO Action Day Against Climate Change is a result of a year-long work by a working group set up by the NGO-UNESCO Liaison committee as a result of the proposal made during the Conference of NGOS in 2014. The Working Group defined the topics to be addressed by this Declaration and then created an online consultation process to have a first round of feedback for the content of the Declaration. Following this an international event on the 6 October including 26 countries and 70 representatives came together to share their actions on Climate Change and also to co-construct the Declaration using a non formal education technique, ‘World Café’ which allowed the whole group to give their inputs for the declaration.
The result of this participative process is a common declaration which aims to reflect the diversity of the NGOs present and the common concerns related to Climate Change
