Non Parties – Interest Groups

Groups brought together by a shared interest and knowledge can be particularly influential in lobbying and educating. For instance, here are a few:

The Global Climate and Health Alliance The Alliance is made up of health and development organisations from around the world united by a shared vision of an equitable, sustainable future.  Our vision is a world in which the health impacts of climate change are kept to a minimum, and the health co-benefits of climate change mitigation are maximised.”

Global Solar Council  “Our mission is to encourage the rapid and wide-scale adoption of solar energy through global cooperation, education and training.”

The Leap Manifesto is a group in Canada addressing the wrongs done to Canada’s indigenous peoples and gathering signatures to support “We could live in a country powered entirely by renewable energy, woven together by accessible public transit, in which the jobs and opportunities of this transition are designed to systematically eliminate racial and gender inequality. Caring for one another and caring for the planet could be the economy’s fastest growing sectors. Many more people could have higher wage jobs with fewer work hours, leaving us ample time to enjoy our loved ones and flourish in our communities.”

The London Community Resource Centre (LCRC) “we pioneer community-based solutions for waste prevention, recycling and re-use across the capital.” For instance they team with Olio to help people advertise and give away surplus food.  They also arrange conferences such as the Rushlight Resourceful Conference to promote good working relations between companies, charities and social entrepreneurs.
