Outreach Update – Second Quarter 2020

During this period, the world adjusted to the constraints of meeting, interacting and working in a predominantly virtual environment. C2G moved quickly to collaborate with partners online, including through its own events and online conferences. C2G managed to keep many conversations alive, and even open one or two new engagements in this challenging environment.

ECOS Community Call
Large Scale CO2 removal: What is it and how can the youth help govern it?

C2G took part in an online discussion about CDR and the role of young people, with the Climate Education, Communication & Outreach Stakeholders Community (ECOS). The community call was led by Viktor Josa, and featured a demonstration by Bindu Bhandari of Climate Interactive’s EN-ROADS climate simulator as well as a discussion on governing large-scale CDR by C2G’s Senior Program Director, Kai-Uwe Barani Schmidt. This was an exciting development in an area which remains relatively new to this constituency, and was attended by around 40 participants.

Toward a potential ‘CDR Forum’

C2G completed an initial step in a mapping exercise to identify a list of existing fora and processes relevant to scaling up and governing CDR, sharing the outcomes with government representatives interested in a potential ‘CDR Forum’. C2G convened further conversations about a potential ‘CDR Forum’, including a pair of calls on 26 May, which were attended by 19 participants from countries around the globe, as well as the EU and the UNFCCC. Participants discussed what purpose the forum could serve and shared their experiences with CDR.

LEDS LAC Webinar Series
Potential of public sector policies to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement

C2G partnered with the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and Low Emission Development Strategies Latin America and the Caribbean (LEDS LAC) to deliver a series of webinars to strengthen capacities in Latin America and the Caribbean on its issues. The series kicked-off in May with more than 150 participants learning how to use the EN-ROADS simulator, which demonstrated the role of CDR in lowering global temperatures. Participants were intrigued by the impacts the different variables had on global temperatures – particularly carbon tax and carbon dioxide removal, which are the two variables that were identified during the workshop as having the most impact to reach the temperature goal of the Paris Agreement. The rest of the series (3 webinars) will be delivered during the 3rd Quarter.
