The three days of the summit will be organised around three main formats: plenary sessions, forums and workshops, to understand the formats, consult this page.
This pre-program is subject to change.
6 plenary sessions to explore the essential subjects in depth
All Climate Chance participants will meet together around major subjects, presented by the key figures of international climate action. The plenary sessions will be key moments of the summit and the chance to bring together a large number of international actors to take stock of the COP21 and actions carried out since the Paris agreement was signed last December, and also to summarise the messages from non-state actors associated with and before the COP22. Several successive speakers will review the mobilisation of non-state actors, and their involvement in the implementation of the Action Agenda.
Two sessions with the first one presenting the review of the COP21 and the actions undertaken since the signature of the Paris Agreement. The second session will be a synthesis of the conferences and the key components of the programme. Focused on the future, this closing plenary session will also be a link with the COP22, and the next stages of the Action Agenda.
How can the development models for energies which are developed in Africa contribute to the building of the sustainable world of tomorrow? This session will highlight the financing accessible to African actors and will offer the opportunity to tackle one of the subjects to be debated in Morocco during the COP22.
The Forums organised during the 2016 Climate Chance summit will enable non-state actors involved in the fight against climate change to engage in a sustainable, coherent and organised dynamic. This process is directly associated with the implementation of the Paris Agreement, the realisation of the Action Agenda and the contribution of concrete actions that will enable an ambitious reassessment of the Voluntary Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). In order to achieve our ambitions, we will offer different dynamic formats during the 2016 Climate Chance Forums.
➢ Forums based on thematic coalitions
These Forums will be the chance to bring together pre-existing coalitions or those being formed. The aim is to provide an update and define a road map for these thematic coalitions for 2018 (reassessment date for the INDCs). The coalitions that will meet during these forums are mainly the result of the World Summit on Climate and Territories that took place in Lyon in July 2015. The 2016 Climate Chance summit in Nantes is also the opportunity to launch new coalitions, particularly on the themes of Ocean and Coastline and Circular Economy and Climate.
➢ High Level Participative Dialogue Forums
These Forums will be the chance to promote high level participative dialogue on subjects including carbon pricing, the 2030 Covenant and the governance of the Action Agenda - all strategic subjects for implementing the Paris Agreement.
65 workshops to draw a picture of the state of action worldwide
These workshops aim to showcase the state of international action by non-state climate actors, share initiatives, open them up to discussion and test, promote both local and international innovations and propose action reviews. The workshops will nourish the collective discussions and deepen knowledge for all on the inseparable link between climate and development through a variety of formats (group games, debates, brainstorming, prototype presentations, projections, etc).
Over 11 weeks, from 15 January to 7 April 2016, more than 300 contributions were proposed by global civil society committed to the climate. Non-state actors took up the 10 themes from the World Summit on Climate and Territories in Lyon and the Action Agenda, with the "education, awareness raising and mobilisation" (65 proposals), "regional approach" (61 proposals) and "energy: generation, distribution, consumption" (43 proposals) themes being particularly popular.
Beyond the themes to which the commitments needed to be applied, the non-state actors were also required to meet one of the following challenges: Think – Mobilise – Finance and Do.
The Mobilise and Do challenges gained the most support, highlighting the central role for concrete action and operational implementation.
The contributions are still being analysed by the Reading Committee. The aim to combine isolated contributions with turnkey workshops, whilst ensuring that national/international dialogue is promoted.
