Since the treaty negotiations under the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change are at an impasse and unlikely to deliver a scientifically adequate outcome in the December 2015 meetings in Paris, we ask the question: what would it take to force the governments of the world to actually agree to a legally binding, science-based, and fair climate treaty?

Concluding that only the broadest, most powerful social movement the world has ever seen has a chance of addressing climate change decisively, we will discuss and debate: 1) the current state of global climate justice movements, 2) their proposals going into Paris, and 3) the analyses, strategies, tactics, and alliances they will develop after COP 21.

To do this, we invite everyone who wishes to join us to work toward two ends: to map the global climate justice movement and to generate analyses that might further its ambitious but necessary objectives.
