On 6-8 March 2019, the Basque Country, in partnership with the Network of Regional Governments for Sustainable Development – nrg4SD, organizes the International Conference on Climate Change: Change the Change, in Donostia/San Sebastian, back to back with the 2019 nrg4SD General Assembly, to take place on 4-5 March 2019.
The International Conference Change the Change comes under the UN “Momentum for Change” initiative and in line with the Paris Agreement. The event aims at engaging civil society into governmental actions, and it will facilitate the contact of citizens with regional and local initiatives by promoting understanding and ownership. The goal is to engage citizens to embrace personally the commitment to fight climate change, on the premise that any action, however small, makes a difference.
The Conference will also provide a cutting-edge vision of the climate change challenges facing in the planet and will showcase the initiatives and actions that are making a difference to our people and environment. It will count with the participation of worldwide leaders and showcase initiatives of “Heroes and heroines of the planet”: cutting-edge projects around the world that are an inspiration and represent a call to action for all sectors, governments and citizens across the board.
Representatives of the national, regional and local governments will participate at their highest level in the event, together with international leaders, as well as civil society and stakeholders. The nrg4SD will lead the discussions focusing on regional leadership for climate adaptation and the RegionsAdapt initiative.
The Conference will be held in the framework of the “Basque Country’s Climate Change Week”, which plans different events along that week in diverse locations throughout the region. Introducing an innovative proposal of micro-meetings, presentations of inspiring projects, exhibitions and other side events, the “Basque Country’s Climate Change Week” will have the participation of multiple sectors such as industry, science, politics and culture, as well as the support of different international networks, with the leadership of nrg4SD.
