Incubator Lab: October, 29 to November 1, 2022 in Ljubljana, Slovenia
Global Diplomacy Lab (GDL) members Vivian Valencia, Kyle Matthews, Diego Osorio and Stefan Cibian hosted a Lab examining new pathways to integrate peacebuilding and climate security from the perspective of interdisciplinary engagement, public diplomacy, civil society participation and proactive grassroots efforts.
The objective of this Lab was to design a strategy to empower local communities by creating a collaborative mechanism and maintaining a repository of local grassroots knowledge, expertise and civil society support. The participants took concrete steps to:
1) discuss the nature of the climate security challenge with a focus on the local level,
2) identify communities that have successfully developed and applied mechanisms to deal with climate change-related security issues (i.e. lighthouses), and
3) ascertain what tools or mechanisms are missing as well as map key stakeholders.
