Event type: Hybrid
Civil movements have played a central role in the establishment of climate policies on a global scale. COP is a highly-governmental occasion for climate issues, the state violence and oppression against climate/environmental activists deserve more public attention. This session aims to provide more perspectives and awareness of this issue and advocate for structural change in terms of the political and economic systems in the context of the Asia-Pacific region. Human rights’ protection and democratic structures are inseparable from meaningful climate policies and state accountability. In this session, activists will share their experience in activism in the face of state oppression or inaction. We would further explore the possible measures at international levels, the empowerment for civilians and advocacy for this issue.
