Participants will have the opportunity to directly contribute to the shaping of the Pathway to Paris Priorities Matrix, a coordinating strategy document that will be used to raise ambitions for consensus on effective climate policy implementation at the COP21 in Paris. Participants are invited to convene small groups in their location, to offer not only the insights of one person, but of the group joining from that room. 

During the Working Session, we will use this form, to gather participants' priorities, suggestions, and commitments. 

We will facilitate discussion on Twitter, using the hashtag #CCLParisWS, and we will share useful insights in the Fuze meeting. Twitter posts will be considered informal contributions, not direct engagement in the Working Session.

Report from Impact Hub

On Thursday, January 15, 2015, the Pathway to Paris project hosted its first Direct Engagement Working Session, at Impact Hub, in New York City. Citizens from New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, came together to work on a coordinating framework for the coming Paris agreement. They formed working groups, debated policy priorities, and produced working drafts of policy analysis for six focus areas, relating to the global climate negotiations.

The six Working Group focus areas were:

- Carbon Pricing
- Climate Finance
- The Discount Rate and Intergenerational Equity
- Education and Engagement
- International Cooperation (for a globally harmonized, locally retained carbon tax)
- Water and Food Resources
