Titel / Title: Engaging Urban Communities of Newcomers to Sweden towards UNFCCC Climate Change Targets through Participation and Diversity
Abstrakt Abstract:

Human-influenced climate change is rapidly accelerating and
continues to threaten to human existence. Global migration is leading
to increasingly multicultural urban populations. This paper ties these
two issues together through the lense of engagement. The thesis
argues that a Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development
(FSSD) can be used to plan strategies to engage multicultural
communities towards second commitment Kyoto targets and be an
opportunity for meeting community needs for social sustainability.
The research took place in Sweden through interviews and focus
groups. Key findings address systematic exclusion and the potential
of inquiry to discover barriers and leverage points. The resulting set
of guidelines for municipalities utilizes the full spectrum of
engagement (inform, consult, involve, collaborate, empower) and the
FSSD to enhance existing climate change action plans towards
maximum participation for fulfilling Kyoto Protocol mandates.
