The European Assembly for Climate Justice took place in Brussels from 26-29 November and brought together more than 250 people from 10 European countries for 4 days of debates, discussion, action and networking.
The event gave a clear signal that the UN climate negotiations, taking place in Cancún, Mexico must not be used to further the interests of rich industrialised countries, and big business.
The participants also discussed the way in which European countries are responding to the climate crisis – and specifically the need to ensure that action to tackle climate change also brings us closer to achieving justice within and between countries.
The assembly was inspired by the call made by La Via Campesina for “Thousands of Cancuns” during the negotiations in Cancun.
