19 March, 2009. UTS joins global partnership to understand world-wide community concerns on climate change

UTS will represent Australia on March 23 in Copenhagen at a meeting of international partners and for the launch of the first-ever global community consultation on climate change.


Researchers from the UTS Institute for Sustainable Futures will attend the first meeting of 60 national partners for coordinating the World Wide Views on Global Warming (WWViews) project.


Representatives from 43 countries from all continents of the world have joined WWViews to give citizens the opportunity to influence international climate change negotiations that will take place in Copenhagen in December, under the auspices of the United Nations (known as COP15).

Issues including democracy, citizen consultation, and climate change will be discussed at the WWViews three-day meeting.

WWViews is initiated and organized by the Danish Board of Technology and the Danish Cultural Institute. Central to the project are the worldwide citizen consultations which will be held on September 26.
