Status of initiative: N/a
Description/achievement of initiative

Networking and collaboration amongst organisations working on diverse aspects of a sustainable and equitable future, to exchange information, learn from each others' initiatives, influence international negotiations, and continue to build a vision of and pathways for such a future.

Implementation methodologies

This is a joint initiative of several organisations and networks; the ideas and learnings that are part of this process will feed into the activities each of these organisations and networks is involved in, e.g. practical, policy, and conceptual elements of the Radical Ecological Democracy framework will be integrated into networks and platforms of environment education, human rights advocacy, community natural resource governance initiatives, and so on. The learnings from these will in turn feed back into the RED Treaty process, continuing to help evolve the collective vision of and steps towards an alternative future.

Arrangements for Capacity-Building and Technology Transfer

Primarily through information exchange, occasionally the exchange of personnel, and where possible capacity workshops at international events.

Coordination mechanisms/governance structure

The two originating organisations, Kalpavriksh and Poloc, will continue to coordinate the further development and implementation of the Treaty, acting as a hub of communication and joint activities, but not attempting to dictate the activities of individual member organisations.
