World Wide Views (WWV) on Climate and Energy 2015
World Wide Views on Climate and Energy is a global citizen consultation, providing unique information about how far citizens around the world are willing to go, in order to deal with climate change and to bring forward an energy transition.
Citizens were selected to reflect the demographic diversity in their countries or regions (at least 100 per country or region) attended a daylong meeting in their respective countries, starting at dawn in the Pacific, and continuing until dusk in the Americas. The ambition is to involve 10,000 citizens in 100 countries. All citizens will receive information about pros, cons and views on different climate and energy policies, targets and measures (both in advance and on that day) and all meetings will follow the same agenda and guidelines in order to make the results comparable.
Citizens have expressed their views on an identical set of questions, designed to reflect policy controversies at the COP negotiations and political discussions about climate and energy in general. The results are updated at The Climate Change and Energy website, allowing for easy exploration and comparisons of results; one country with another, developed countries with developing, etc.
MNS was privileged to speer head this international effort together with our local partners, MENGO, Embassy of France in Malaysia, Petaling Jaya District Council (MBPJ), EcoKnights and Malaysian Climate Change Group (MCCG).
44 Malaysian citizens participated and casted their votes to all the global issues raised and 10 facilitators and volunteers helped with the coordination.
Updates from other countries including Malaysia will be updated constantly at http://climateandenergy.wwviews.org/results/
