Klimaforum09 - the people’s climate summit

Klimaforum09 is your climate summit, the global civil society counterpart of the official UN conference in the Bella Center.


With ten thousand daily visitors, participants from over 100 countries and a comprehensive programme of events, Klimaforum09 will be the biggest climate event in Copenhagen besides the official UN conference.

The programme features international guest speakers, over 150 open debates, 60 exhibitions, music, film and art.

Klimaforum09 is not an NGO (non-governmental organisation) we have no special causes, interests or agendas.

We are here to represent ordinary concerned citizens from all around the world.

We DON’T represent vested interests such as bureaucratics, politicans, business or civil servants.

We DO represent scientists, grassroots activists, academics, writers, artists and people from all walks of life.

The idea behind Klimaforum09 is to create an open space, where people, movements and organisations can develop constructive solutions to the climate crisis.

Thousands of participants from all continents are expected to take part in Klimaforum09. Special efforts are being made to invite people from regions in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Oceania who will suffer most from climate change.

Klimaforum09 takes place in DGI-byen, a huge conference complex in the centre of Copenhagen just 50 metres from the central station.

Klimaforum09 opens 7 December and ends 18 December.

Klimaforum09 is organized by a broad coalition of Danish and international environmental movements and civil society organizations.

Klimaforum09 is free and open to all.
