INFORSE Coordinators’ Meeting

On October 18-21, 1999, the INFORSE Regional Coordinators met for the 5th time. The meeting took place at the Folkecenter for Renewable Energy in Denmark. The Coordinators set the focus for the coming years’ INFORSE activities:

· NGO activities to influence the global agenda: the UN Climate Convention, the UN Convention to Combat Desertification and CSD9 (see p.3).

· Help increase global awareness of sustainable energy with on-line database, internet-based education, and many other activities.

· Strengthen the network with increased regional activities, to support global activities, and to increase cooperation among INFORSE members.

· Produce a new charter for INFORSE, and use it to develop a broad consensus among Sustainable Energy NGOs. The Charter shall be approved by all core members in the year 2000.

· Use South-South-North fund with seed funding for INFORSE members to start up cooperative projects.

All core members will receive more information on the results of the meeting, and Sustainable Energy News will cover the resulting activities.
