Road to Copenhagen Conference is a joint initiative of the GLOBE Europe, Club of Madrid and Respect Table which generated ?ownership of the negotiations process? amongst people across the world beyond those directly involved in closed, government-to-government negotiations: civil society, business, students, legislators. The initiative made it possible for people from these sectors of society to contribute their personal recommendations to the global climate deal through online and in-person debates. A final set of recommendations (the Communiqu?) emerging from the process was delivered directly to policy-makers today via the U.N.'s top climate official, Yvo de Boer.
