False Solutions, Fossil Farces, and Fake Finance: What to Expect at Bonn Climate Change Conference

WHAT

The Global Campaign to Demand Climate Justice (DCJ)  is holding a press conference on 6 June 2022 during the United Nations’ Conference on Climate Change at Bonn. DCJ and its members will share the demands and expectations of grassroot communities and frontline climate crisis defenders from this conference. They will also highlight the corporate capture of climate change dialogue perpetuating false solutions and greenwashing by the fossil fuel industry as well as lack of government action to address and mitigate loss and damage and provide climate finance for the Global South communities.

Bonn Climate Change Conference is the 56th session of the subsidiary bodies, which will take place from 6 to 16 June 2022, at the World Convention Center Bonn, Germany to prepare for the UN Climate Change Conference COP27 in November this year. This year the June sessions will focus on greenhouse gas emission reductions, adapting to climate impacts, and providing financial support for developing countries to cut emissions and adapt to climate change.

The Global Campaign to Demand Climate Justice (DCJ) is a global network of over 200 grassroot, regional, and global networks and organizations advocating for climate justice.
