The “Commonwealth Climate Change Communication Conference” (C5) will be held in London, UK, 24-26 November 2010. Expressions of interest to attend the event are now being invited. Shared with CEC members by Prof. Walter Leal.

London, 24-26 November 2010

The event is organised by the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCP) and London Metropolitan University, UK, in collaboration with various agencies. The C5 conference follows the latest meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of State (CHOGM 2009) in Trinidad and the commitment expressed in the “Port of Spain Climate Change Consensus” to help Commonwealth States to face the challenges of climate change.

The C5 conference aims to discuss approaches and methods to foster communication on mitigation and adaptation to climate change, introduce some of the excellent work on climate change communication taking place across the Commonwealth and foster information exchange among government and non-government organizations active in this field in Commonwealth countries. The event also aims to provide a basis for further initiatives in this field, especially in respect of capacity building.

Based on the need to have a focused event which will lead to a series of follow-up initiatives, attendance will be mostly by invitation. Expressions of interest from bona fide government officials, academics and members of well-established NGOs to attend the event are therefore now being invited. Suitable individuals and representatives of institutions who are active in the field of climate change communication and who feel they may contribute to the event, are kindly requested to send their expressions of interest to the conference Secretariat at ICCIP: info@iccip.net.
Some support (grants) may be provided to accepted participants from Commonwealth developing countries so as to allow them to attend the event. Further details on the C5 conference are available at the conference website >>
