Co-organised by INTER PARES | Parliaments in Partnership – EU Global Project to Strengthen the Capacity of Parliaments, International IDEA and the Council of Europe.

INTER PARES | Parliaments in Partnership – EU Global Project to Strengthen the Capacity of Parliaments organized the World Forum for Democracy Satellite Event titled “Parliaments, Climate Change, and Intergenerational Justiceon 6 October 2021.

In this interactive seminar, we explored the question of Parliaments, Climate Change, and Intergenerational Justice from diverse perspectives. Our focus on parliaments underlined that they are the unique institution that engages citizens in the formal governance process in representative democracy, responsible for legislation, oversight of the executive, and voting the budget. Parliaments are at the heart of strategies to enhance inter-generational democracy.

The seminar brought together leading activists and experts in the fields of parliaments, climate change, and youth democratic engagement, who took part in a vivid and interactive discussion. The session was open to participants to share their perspectives and propose practical solutions.
