With the help of the European working group “program” and the sustainability Centre of the University of Lausanne,  the whole week has been planned with plenaries, group discussions and activities related to climate change. The open forum will consist of group discussions, workshops and talks on topics that participants will choose and suggest on the first day. Strategic plenaries are essential to decide of the future of our movement, decisions will be taken by consensus. On August 9th, an international strike will happen in Lausanne, followed by a climate party! 

Strategic plenaries

The plenaries taking place on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday will aim to reach consens on three documents about our

  • values and principles
  • strategic and operational goals
  • demands

These documents are participative. The ideas are collected before the meeting. As a participant you have received the access to the documents by e-mail. You are very welcome to suggest your ideas. At the meeting we try to reach consens about the suggestions. 

To reach consens, participants will be in small groups and will have the possibility to ask a question about a proposition OR amend it OR reject it with an explanation. This will be in the form of cards placed on a board everyone can see. If a proposition has no input then we will consider it as accepted by consensus. The Strategy working group (WG) working specifically on the documents will modify the propositions with the input given by the participants at the plenaries. 

At the end of the meeting, the propositions who were accepted by consensus will be published.   

Open forum

On the first day of the meeting, participants will have the opportunity to suggest a topic for a group discussion.

On Tuesday and Thursday morning about 20 discussion groups will take place simultaneously in different rooms. These discussion groups have no specific goals. The purpose of the discussion is defined by the group itself and is self-managed by the group. If your group has a new suggestion for one of the “Strategy document” (the ones sent by e-mail), you can suggest your proposition to the Strategy Working Group and it will be taken into account for the next strategy plenary.

Moderators and experts will also help structure the discussions. We will provide a check-list to make sure the discussions go smoothly. Reporters from each group will make a summary of the discussions in their groups.

In parallel we have invited speakers who will give talks and workshops on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Therefore, participants can choose whether they participate in a discussion group or a talk from a speaker, at any time.

As a participant, you create your own program!
