Montreal’s International Climate Secretariat

By ,

The Quebec government, Équiterre and Montreal International announced this week the creation of a new International Climate Secretariat in Montreal. These will be the headquarters of the Global Campaign for Climate Action (GCCA), a coalition of 20 key international organizations working to increase public pressure on the world’s governments (Canada being high on the list) to take action on climate change.

The group aims to mobilize that pressure in the months leading up to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting, to be held December 7-18, 2009 in Copenhagen.
