TALANOA DIALOGUES 

OCTOBER 18, 2 – 4 PM | THE ALLIANCE CENTER | 1536 Wynkoop Street, Denver, CO

Talanoa is a traditional word used in Fiji and across the Pacific to reflect a process of inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue. The purpose of Talanoa is to share stories, build empathy and to make wise decisions for the collective good. The process of Talanoa involves the sharing of ideas, skills and experience through storytelling.

During the process, participants build trust and advance knowledge through empathy and understanding. Blaming others and making critical observations are inconsistent with building mutual trust and respect, and therefore inconsistent with the Talanoa concept. Talanoa fosters stability and inclusiveness in dialogue, by creating a safe space that embraces mutual respect for a platform for decision making for a greater good.

Through these dialogues, government and stakeholders will come to the table in around 40 countries to drive forward multilevel climate action worldwide.  A readout from this dialogue will feed into climate negotiations at COP 24.

The initiative is part of a wider, global exercise on national climate action, an outcome of COP23, the 23rd United Nations Climate Change Conference last year in Bonn. It is designed to engage climate stakeholders in taking stock of and shaping national climate plans through in-country consultations throughout 2018.

Join the conversation as we discuss The Paris Climate Agreement:
