PARTICIPANT DIVERSITY

Over the two years leading up to the conference, we raised sufficient funds to bring the following participants from the Global South to CCC19. Individually and collectively, they made a huge contribution to the conference, for which we are truly grateful.

One of the outcomes of the conference will be a funding drive to support the separate but connected projects that these climate atavists are already engaged in. More information will soon follow.
