Day 3 of the Climate Action Network (CAN) Equity Meet 2008 started with the 90 seconds 350 animation that found much appreciation from many delegates, including those who did not speak english. The 350 animation was also distributed to the delegates.
The power-packed day started with splitting the delegates into different groups; to address all aspects of climate equity; particularly effort-sharing for mitigation and adaptation, movement building, development & climate change, tech-tranfer etc. Amidst much debate and negotiations, each group presented its outcome in the form of bulleted points that needed to be urgently addressed. Further negotiations led to finalizing these points taking the meet to its next level. Eight breakaway groups were formed on issues identified by participants themselves.
However before these groups commenced work, an impromptu plenary session was held on ‘What can we learn from other movements.’ Two speakers, one non-CAN and one CAN, were invited to highlight relevant issues arising outside of the climate arena which also needed to be addressed if a fair deal was to be achieved in Copenhagen.
