The Opening of the Talanoa Space | Video Coverage of Selected Side Events at the UN Climate Change Conference 2017 | IISD/ENB+ Video Coverage | IISD Reporting Services | International Institute for Sustainable Development

The Opening of the Talanoa Space took place on 6 November 2017 during COP23 in Bonn, Germany. The space, co-hosted by the governments of Germany and Fiji, invites non-state actors, such as representatives from civil society, industry and youth, to engage in the spirit of talanoa. Talanoa is a Fijian tradition of listening and talking that creates a bond, deepening understanding and the ability to work together.

Produced by Tasha Goldberg and filmed/edited by Ben Crowe.
