Let’s empower others to fight climate change!


What is ODCC?

Climate change is real, and it is an emergency. For 28 years members of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change have negotiated our common future during the Conferences of Parties, but we have noticed that there is an insufficient level of social dialogue between the government and society in different countries around the world between these COPs. The aim of the Open Dialogues on Climate Change (ODCC) is to organize inclusive dialogues between stakeholders concerning the climate crisis.

ODCC in the past?

As part of the first edition of the ODCC in 2021, more than 200 people joined our team and 13 Open Dialogues happened in 8 countries on 3 continents. The second edition in 2022 focused on the continent of Africa, featuring 4 Open Dialogues on this continent, along with one in Europe. The 2023 edition of the ODCC, coordinated by the Open Dialogues International Foundation, was a tremendous success, with 57 Dialogues being organized by 24 teams in 20 countries across 4 continents: Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America.

How to apply?

Being a country organizer is an opportunity to work directly with the global coordination as a volunteer and benefit from technical support for the success of your event once selected. We encourage you to promote the values of equality, public participation, climate justice, and solidarity, while raising ecological awareness, promoting sustainable development, and climate education. 

To apply, you need to find other people interested in your climate and sustainability project. Once together, you can plan your Open Dialogues and submit an application form to the international team here at ODIF. When your application is accepted, your team will officially become an ODCC national team and you will be set to start organizing your event!
