The World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth drew thousands of people to Cochabamba, Bolivia, in April 2010. The People’s Conference, unlike the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Conference, encouraged participation by grassroots organizations, indigenous (native) people and activists as well as scientists and politicians. One idea proposed by the summit is a climate tribunal (court) to enforce promises of emission reductions that were made in Copenhagen.
