The Moroccan Coalition for Climate Justice (MCCJ) in collaboration with social movements, associations, and networks and organizations established the ’Autonomous Space’. The space was a place created for raise the voice of the civil society about the Climate Change issue, for share experience and ideas. They were holding different events from the 14/11 to 17/11 with the aim to raise awareness about climate change, the negotiations and also to work together with organizations.
There were 2 main zones: the blue zone that holds most of the state level collaborations in service of the climate, and the green zone that holds the civil society activities.
I expected the participants to be mostly young people but I was surprised to see that this was especially true for the green zone, the blue zone had more diversity in terms of age and status.
The huge diversity of projects made it that in each stand, there were various events in the same day, so in every stand in the entire zone, many events were happening at once and the challenge was to try and be present in the right ones, ones relevant to The Project The New Voice Of Climate.
The kick-off day was rather a global observation of the place, the dynamic and how to plan the next days. It sure did not look easy or simple at first sight but we will discover what the next days will give!
