Climate conference 2017, 6 -8 October
This weekend at school center Lindersvold we had a 2 days climate conference with an exciting program. The conference was arranged by teachers, DI’s and volunteers from Den Rejsende Højskole på Sjælland (DRH Lindersvold). The preparation took place 3 week prior to the conference. During the conference we have were around hundred people.
The first day people were greeted with dinner, good speeches, messages from different corners of the world and watched a couple of short climate related films. The second day, was an investigation day on bicycles in Copenhagen. The places the participants visited were: Fødevare Banken, Høje Taastrup miljø og energicenter, Tagtomat, Jens Juhl Slottet I Smørmosen, UFF Denmark, amongst others. Although it rained and rained the whole day, everyone had a fantastic time with an experience not to be forgotten. During these investigations participants had a chance to meet and learn more from the people who are deeply interest in climate change, through the work they do. The goal of the investigations was to get new knowledge by meeting people and expanding the network.
The last day of the conference was for all to present the investigations and participate in workshops. The workshops were based on concrete actions and decisions to take for the coming year. One workshop focused on planting fruit trees. Another was planning the next climate conference, some other were planning an education day at a school and another about participation in COP23 in Bon.
The goal for next year is to invited 200 people to participate and invite more known names regarding the speeches so it could accommodate the needs of even more people, so that there is something for those who wants to learn and for those who wants to take action. See you at the next climate conference 2018.
