On June 6, 2015, thousands of citizens around the world will participate in a global event, “World Wide Views (WWViews) on Climate and Energy”. This is a global citizen consultation forum that provides unique information on the views of ordinary citizens on how to deal with climate change and accelerate an energy transition. The results from this exercise will be collated and presented to national policy makers, at pre COP 21 meetings and COP 21 to be held in Paris from 30th November to 11th December 2015.
This will provide a critical platform for citizens’ views to be presented in a cogent manner and enhance the spirit of inclusivity in the COP 21 deliberations.
The National Environment Trust Fund (NETFUND) has been appointed as the national implementing agency and is working in close collaboration with Alladin Concepts, Kenya Climate Change Working Group (KCCWG), Green Africa Foundation (GAF), ReNewGen and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to implement the first citizen consultation forum on climate and energy in Kenya on June 6, 2015. This meeting will be attended by 150 participants from all counties in the Republic of Kenya. You will be notified of the venue in due course.
The purpose of this brief is request participation through awareness creation to various stakeholders. We would encourage participation from as many Kenyans as possible. Applications forms are available via the following link: http://www.netfund.go.ke/world-wide-views-kenya/
Kindly note that NETFUND will share the analysed results of this forum with stakeholders.
