Climate change on public agenda in Russia

The ultimate objective of the project is to move Russian decision makers towards a more responsible approach regarding climate change. We believe a precondition for this is an informed Russian public, which can both demand necessary changes and also support the necessary measures which will have to be taken. So far a general public debate and public information on climate change is absent, and the project aim to contribute to fill the gap of the missing public debate on climate change in Russia, on a long term basis, not only before Copenhagen. Thus we want to:

-          Raise public awareness on climate change in Russia

-          Establish broad public demand and support for national measures for climate change mitigation and adaptation.

 We believe NGOs and journalists are two groups that can act as change agents in this development. So far only NGOs are trying to create a debate, but with limited resources and capacity. Journalists do not have sufficient knowledge and/or interest, and need to be motivated to raise this issue into the public debate.”
