Red Cross/Red Crescent

NGO Consultations -Europe/North America - Climate and Environment Charter for Humanitarian Organisations

 

Meeting to provide feedback on the First Draft of the Climate and Environment Charter for Humanitarian Organisations in English, French, Arabic and Spanish. 

 

ICVA is part of the Advisory Committee to draft the Climate and Environment Charter. The Advisory Committee  includes a number of humanitarian and climate actors (UN, civil society, academics, Red Cross Red Crescent Movement) led by the ICRC and the IFRC and is working together to develop a series of short and clear commitments that could guide our efforts as humanitarians in relation to limiting the impacts of climate change and environmental degradation on communities and reducing our own footprint. 

This is linked to a pledge on “Strengthening the resilience of communities to climate change and environmental degradation through climate-smart humanitarian action”, made at the 33rd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent by the IFRC and the ICRC. The pledge is about leading a consultative process to develop a new, succinct, accessible and aspirational Climate and Environment Charter in 2021 that will be made available to the wider humanitarian sector for adoption in the spirit of the Code of Conduct of 1994. 

 

Online consultations: A series of  regional consultations have been organised  to collect feedback from members on the draft Charter

Climate:Red

The Red Cross and Red Crescent will be running Climate:Red a fully virtual climate change summit on 9 – 10 September 2020.

Our network of 192 National Societies, 165,000 local branches and 14 million volunteers agreed that climate change is a critical challenge facing us in our Strategy 2030.

 

Climate change affects everyone, everywhere. Therefore, we will hold a summit where no country or person is excluded. This will be a summit with no flights. We will accommodate all time zones, it will run for 30 consecutive hours, so no one will miss out.

 

We believe that cost, location or connectivity should not stop anyone from joining conversations and taking action on one of the most important issues of the century. We will offer options for people with high and low-internet connectivity to participate fully. The summit will also be run in four languages; English, Spanish, French and Arabic.

Most of all, we want to recreate the feel of a real in-person summit. A summit is not just about listening, but connecting and building new ideas and initiatives, and you will be able to do just that.

The summit will feature:
  • Plenaries from high level speakers on climate change;
  • Interactive Panel Discussions and workshops;
  • Coffee Chats – meet random people in the coffee room and exchange ideas and digital business cards;
  • Co-creation sessions – work in small workshops with other National Societies or teams to build new initiatives, or if you are a Branch join the ‘Branches Connect’ sessions to be virtually linked to other branches around the world to explore new projects;
  • Virtual Tours – National Societies and partners can host a virtual tour of their climate related projects for summit participants;
  • Innovation Pitch Tent – staff, volunteers and young people from National Societies will be able to submit innovative project ideas for climate initiatives. Finalists will be invited to pitch their ideas at a special pitch tent at the summit where judges and audiences will vote for the winning projects.  Winners will receive grant funding to help implement their projects;
  • Games – there will be some fun digital games to participate in before and during the summit.

Strategy 2030 and The Movement Ambitions to Address the Climate Crisis sets out our collective vision on how we intend to meet the challenge. Now we need to translate that vision into action.

We can’t wait to meet you there.
