In 2010, over 30,000 grassroots activists, policy makers and researchers from around the world came together in Cochabamba, Bolivia to develop a socially just response to climate change. At the center of these discussions were frontline communities impacted by the root causes, impacts and false solutions to the ecological crisis currently facing us. Inspired by, and in solidarity with, the World People’s Conference on Climate Change held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, communities in the Twin Cities (the Minneapolis and St. Paul region) convened a series of dialogues in 2011 to discuss climate change and propose a framework for solutions. These dialogues resulted in the formulation of the Twin Cities Peoples Agreement on Climate Change.
