We are in a historic moment wherein world leaders will continue drafting a new global treaty agreement on climate change this year in Lima at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference on Parties (COP).  The final agreement is then expected to be signed in 2015 at the COP 21 in Paris.  The People’s Summit on Climate Change will coincide with the last few days of the UN process.  It will provide a space for concerned people, organizations, civil society and social movements to “…share initiatives, proposals and experiences, as well as define and coordinate our agendas, to bring pressure to bear on the decision makers at COP 20, and demand that the official negotiators take account of the world’s citizens and peoples.”
