12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET VIDEO CONFERENCE
November 10 debriefing
We find our team on site in Egypt for a report on this fourth opening day, which aims to welcome leaders from around the world to the Conference of the Parties to present high-level ambitions and actions with a view to maintain a 1.5°C threshold within reach, adapt to protect communities and natural habitats and mobilize funding. These sessions will certainly see the emergence of new collaborations and strategies mobilization of members of civil society. They make it possible to ensure greater transparency between the “in camera” discussions of the negotiators and the rest of the population, in addition to reducing the risk of a gap between the discourse and the international commitments of those elected and their practices.

Thanks to the initiative of several organizations (Écothèque, the Montreal Climate Generation Delegation, Oxfam-Québec, etc.), last April a motion was unanimously adopted in the Quebec National Assembly asking to study the creation of a permanent youth council committee on climate. Soon, young people, accompanied by Oxfam-Québec and the partners of the Climate Dialogues, will offer you a privileged space for exchange and co-creation by and for young people, to reflect on the desired orientations and forms for this eventual youth climate committee in the government of Quebec. A report of recommendations will then be sent to the decision-making bodies, so that they can be taken into consideration in the development of bills and public policies.
