Global Labor Migration and its Impact on Asia 
Mobilizing Democracy to Tackle Climate Change
19 Apr - 20 Apr, 2010
 The Do's and Don'ts of Intervention

This event is presented by Salzburg Global Seminar together with the Dartington Hall Trust, Schumacher College - the International Centre for Sustainable Living, and the Foundation for Democracy and Sustainable Development. It is delivered in collaboration with, and hosted by Goodenough College, London.

Rapid, effective and fair action on climate change calls for radical innovation in democratic decision-making and in the mobilisation of citizens and organisations to act differently. Unsustainable models of economic growth and consumption dominate political discourse yet there are few examples of elections being won by parties advocating an alternative paradigm. Designed for leaders and change makers, this seminar will focus on the central question: what innovations are needed in democracy and participatory decision-making, if we want them to deliver the actions required to mitigate and adapt to climate change?

The seminar will include expert input from global, national and local leaders together with opportunities for facilitated learning and the exchange of experiences between participants. Our intention is to create a rich and dynamic learning programme.
