OECD Global Forum on Development 2017

Closing the gap between the actual and the desired level of investments to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) is clearly beyond the reach of governments and public lenders. This problem can be addressed only with the engagement of the private sector in the shift towards sustainable models of production, respectful of the environments and human rights. Participants at this year’s OECD Global Forum on Development took stock of existing initiatives to catalyse the power of the private sector in supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, explored new avenues of partnerships to mobilise the necessary resources.

Some of the most important personalities from the diplomacy, financial and global businesses world, attended the event, as:

  • Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General
  • Amina J. Mohammed, UN Deputy Secretary-General
  • Alain Papiasse, Deputy General Director of BNP Paribas
  • Amy Jadesimi, managing director of LADOL International

As Italian Climate Network delegate I attended the Global Forum to have an insight on the current business approaches to the shift towards a greener economy and more sustainable means of production.

Italian Climate Network – School Project 2016/2017

After a year of trial lessons, Italian Climate Network launched in September 2016 the "School Project", a annual series of classes to explain climate change to secondary school students. The project has a multidisciplinary approach highlighting the tight connection between this issues and topics like human rights, health, waste management and climate science. The educational initiative aims at providing correct knowledge about the phenomenon of young people, raising awareness and empowering them. In March 2017, the first edition of the "School Project" ended, reaching 30 schools in 12 cities and nine Italian regions, for a total of about 1,400 students involved.

I am the author and lecturer of the “Climate and Human Rights” lesson of the Italian Climate Network’s School Project 2016/2017. I regularly travelled to Italy to deliver the project in Italian schools.

Italian Climate Network - UNFCCC Conferences

Italian Climate Network (ICN) regularly attend the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conferences with a delegation of young observers. The delegation provide support to the ICN’s advocacy action and media coverage of the conference with detailed insights on the ongoing negotiations and side event topics.

The association started its advocacy work on intergenerational equity during the 19th Conference of the Parties (COP 19) of the  UNFCCC held in Warsaw, Poland, in 2013. The initiative, ran in cooperation with many other youth climate movements worldwide, had the ambitious goal of introducing of the principle into the Paris Agreement and then to maintain its presence in the international debate on climate change. The principle was first introduced into the negotiating text during COP20 held in Lima, Perù, and then maintained in the preamble of the treaty agreed in Paris during the COP21 in 2015. These major achievements are the result of intensive advocacy work at national and international level. Italian Climate Network has also received the endorsement of Italian Minister for the Environment  Gian Luca Galletti , who signed a specific declaration to support the principle during COP21.

Italian Climate Network is now advocating for the  implementation  of the intergenerational equity principle, and developing a new advocacy strategy related to human rights and health.

As observer at the  UNFCCC COP21  (Paris),  COP22  (Marrakesh),  SB46  (Bonn) my contributions to the ICN’s activities have been so far:

  • In-depth analysis of the negotiations, focusing on gender equality and human rights principles implementation
  • Writing articles and media content production for the ICN’s technical bulletin and website
  • Speaker at the side event “ACE in action: examples of youth leadership on climate change education and awareness creation” during the UNFCCC SB46 in Bonn, 2017
  • Liaising and collaborating with UNFCCC Women and Gender Constituency
  • Developing the new ICN’s advocacy action for the implementation gender equity principles
  • ICN’s spokesperson on gender and human rights topics (release of interviews for Rai News 2015, Lifegate and Giornalisti nell’Erba 2016)

Italian Climate Network – School Project Training Day 2016

In 2015 Italian Climate Network started the development of a new educational initiative, the “School Project”. Secondary schools in Italy don’t always integrate climate change in their curricula. Through a series of multidisciplinary lessons, the project aims at providing accurate knowledge about this phenomenon to young people, raising awareness and empowering them. After a series of trial lessons, the authors gathered in Milan on the 8th July 2016, to share the results of their work and train the team of speakers for the project's launch, scheduled for September 2016.

Authors and presentations:

Federico Brocchieri – CLIMATE CHANGE: CAUSES, CONSEQUENCES AND SOLUTIONS Federico Brocchieri – CLIMATE NEGOTIATIONS
Chiara Soletti – CLIMATE AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Benedetta Rossi – CLIMATE AND HEALTH
Federico Capezzuoli – CLIMATE AND WASTE MANAGEMENT Marco Milano – CLIMATE SCIENCE

As the author of the “Climate and Human Rights” lesson of the Italian Climate Network’s School Project, I presented the results of my work and contributed to the formation of the new team of lecturers.

Italian Climate Network – Women, Rights and Climate Section

Born as an in-depth column in 2015, the success of the "Women, Rights and Climate" initiative has turned its activity into a stable Section of Italian Climate Network (ICN). The group is working to carry out activities aimed at analysing the link between climate change and human rights, with a defined focus on gender issues. The goal is to raise awareness on this topic, developing a new consciousness about the complexity of climate change’s consequences.

I am the Coordinator of the Women, Rights and Climate Section of Italian Climate Network and I am responsible for all its activities. Projects and initiatives developed for the Section:

  • Production of articles and editorial series of in-depth studies (Towards COP21, Climate Amazons, Earth Defenders, General In-depth Studies)
  • Advocacy action development for the introduction of human rights principles in the Paris Agreement implementation
  • Collaboration with the Women & Gender Constituency during UNFCCC conferences
  • Participation in the study session "Exploring gender equality in environmental projects" at the European Youth Center, organized by Youth and Environment Europe (YEE) in collaboration with the Council of Europe
  • Participation in conferences for the development of new projects and partnerships ( "Climate change:what can/can't be fixed?" Birkbeck University 2016,  OECD Global Forum on Development 2017, "Combating Climate Change: can global agreements, regulation or markets ever deliver?" Toulouse School of Economics 2017)
  • Participation as registered partners in the Global Women's Call for Climate Justice campaign in 2015 and "Women's Act for Climate Justice: 10 days of mobilization" in 2016
