Mother Earth News readers have an opportunity to tell the 194 countries committed to the Paris Climate Agreement that “you are still in” by applying by next Friday, August 4th to join ICLEI USA in November at COP23.

As a follow up to the #WeAreStillIn campaign, ICLEI USA is announcing a campaign to support a people’s delegation to COP23, the 2017 Conference of the Parties organized under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). COP23 will take place in Bonn, Germany, from November 6-17, 2017.

The nations that have signed on to the Paris Agreement will attend COP23 to continue implementation of the Agreement. ICLEI is the only city network accredited as an observer to the UNFCCC and is the focal point for the Local Governments and Municipal Authorities (LGMA) working group — giving us the unique opportunity to amplify the voices of the individuals and communities that inspire local leaders to act.

Apply by August 4 to Join the People’s Delegation to COP23
