The climate movement is global, and so is the Gathering: the event covers all timezones!

You choose what sessions to attend. For the full experience, you can join a 6-hour ‘cycle’ for each of the 3 days in your desired timezone; otherwise, simply drop in for individual workshops. Each 6-hour ‘cycle’ will include:

  • An opening musical performance and an inspirational panel of keynote speakers
  • Your choice of smaller-group, interactive sessions including Workshops, Cultural, and Movement Stories sessions
  • Plenty of time for breaks so you can rest and step away from the screen, or network with other participants and partner organisations

This is a public event. Participants should be aware of this when participating in sessions. In addition, you may want to consider your own digital security, such as using VPN.

Also, facilitators and moderators will work to ensure sessions are conducted with dignity and respect between participants.

This will be an interactive, dynamic online experience – much more than a standard webinar or zoom call.

All you’ll need is a good-quality internet connection, and an appropriate device. (See more below if you think you may need help with either of these).

For the best experience, with full interactivity, join using a computer or tablet. A smartphone will also work, but it is less ideal, as the networking chat functionalities of our event platform are not available on smaller screens.

For software: our technology provider recommends the Chrome browser, though Firefox, Safari, Edge, and most other modern browsers, will also work. Internet Explorer is not recommended. Plenary sessions will be streamed in your browser.

To join interactive sessions, you will need to download the Zoom videoconferencing app.

Watch our Orientation Video to learn how to navigate our Virtual Event Platform.

Our conference programme now includes over 200 interactive sessions and workshops. We can’t add more pre-scheduled sessions now, but you are welcome to visit the Networking > Groups space, and start your own discussion room that anyone can join.

The networking function is demonstrated at 5:45 in our Orientation video.

Diversity is at the heart of this event, and we’re committed to building an accessible and multilingual experience. We acknowledge that access to clear, easy to understand information and communication is crucial for enabling participation. While recognizing our limited resources and capacity, we have chosen a key platform due to its accessibility functionalities.

We are providing multilingual audio interpretation, live-captioning and other accessibility tools in all plenary sessions, and whenever feasible. The set of languages (and captioning) that each session is available in, is displayed in the ‘Sessions’ section of the event platform.

Learn more about languages, and how to find sessions in your language, by watching our Orientation Video – which is spoken in English, but captioned in all the languages we are supporting.

Acknowledging that internet connections vary in quality and cost around the world, may be able to provide monetary support to some individuals or groups of participants, through a Participation Equity fund that will be managed and assigned by’s national or regional teams.

We will broadcast the events on YouTube and Facebook, as those require less bandwidth (in those cases, though, other accessibility tools such as interpretation and translated simultaneous captioning are not available due to the platforms’ limitations). Wherever possible, we will be posting those events with captions afterwards. is an international movement of ordinary people working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.

All plenary sessions and cultural sessions will be recorded and made publicly available on the website.

Some Interactive Workshops and Movement Stories sessions will be recorded, if the session host and all participants have given their consent to be recorded. will work to make those recordings available in the weeks following the Gathering.

Just like a real live conference, all our sessions are ‘live’, so if you pause a livestream and come back a few minutes later, you will have missed what was said while you were away.

Recordings of some sessions, which you will be able to pause, stop, and re-play, will be available only a few days or weeks after the Gathering. It is always better to join a session live, so that your participation and questions can help to shape the session.
