December 5, 2019 to December 11, 2019

CEE’s Mindahi Bastida is preparing to attend the Minga Indigena and COP 25 in Madrid, Spain.  More information about CEE specific programming will be announced soon.
The Minga serves to promote “traditional knowledge for the good of all humanity: indigenous solutions to climate change.”  Please watch this brief video which highlights key agenda items.  Many thanks.


Minga is the indigenous peoples’ alternative to COP 25. Indigenous leaders will share the situation in their communities and territories in the face of climate change. The Summit will allow for learning, discussion and reflection and will conclude with the elaboration of a series of proposals which will be delivered to the Conferences of the Parties (COP) the supreme decision making body of the UNFCC , the international response to climate change.

Good practices will be shared by indigenous leaders so that those attending the Minga Summit can try and implement them in their respective territories.

You can find out more about COP 25 on the official page.

The conference will take place under the Presidency of the Government of Chile and will be held with logistical support from the Government of Spain. The President-designate for the conference is Ms. Carolina Schmidt, Minister of Environment of Chile.
