The People's Pavilion welcomes climate stakeholders to drive discussion at COP27
Today, one day before the formal opening of the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change opens in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, we are launching the COP27 edition of The People’s Pavilion.
The People’s Pavilion is an online convening space that welcomes stakeholders from around the world to view events, join discussions, and bring their perspective to coalitions, networks, and delegates participating in the 2022 round of formal negotiations in Egypt. Our goal is to amplify voices from the frontlines that face limitations to joining intergovernmental negotiations, and to ensure supranational spaces—where policy is made above national authorities and between nations—draw critical action insights from lived experience at the community level.
This climate empowerment lab is recognized by the UNFCCC Action for Climate Empowerment team, convened and coordinated by Citizens’ Climate International and the ACE Observatory, with generous support from the VoLo Foundation, and in collaboration with La Ruta del Clima, IAAI GloCha, the Education Communication and Outreach Stakeholders community (ECOS), Climate Trace, and the U.S. ACE Coalition.
The People’s Pavilion aims to serve as a blueprint for mainstreaming Action for Climate Empowerment in multilateral climate policy processes, expanding the civic space by bridging the negotiations with stakeholders’ needs and priorities.

Citizens’ Climate International is a nonprofit organization working to empower people to secure a livable climate future.
We have facilitated our openCOP engagement process since 2015, when Citizens’ Voice TV and daily “COP of Coffee” briefings allowed stakeholders and observers to connect into the COP21 from around the world.
OpenCOP has also included Talanoa Dialogues and citizens’ assemblies, based on the Engage4Climate Toolkit.
We welcome your thoughtful contribution of insights and local experiences in relation to the policy and action areas we aim to advance at COP27.
