On Saturday, October 1, Cambridge’s Climate Congress opens at City Hall. The purpose is to articulate a vision of “climate citizenship.” The concept of climate citizenship is reviewed in this FAQ regarding the Climate Congress, which also spells out the role of delegates and other kinds of participation open to the public:
“The bare minimum requirements to be a delegate are that you are able to attend the opening (Saturday, Oct 1) (or commit to viewing the video recording ASAP) and closing sessions (Saturday, Nov 12), and participate in at least one weekly evening discussion (usually Wednesday evenings). That said, we understand that not everyone can make that time commitment, so you are not automatically ineligible if you can’t. Individuals can be delegates, and youth and children (the latter with parent’s guidance) are allowed as delegates.”
