The Roadmap is an invitation; a celebration; a call to action. An invitation to all to become engaged in a global network of committed citizens. A celebration of a new model for change based on the open and democratic transformation produced by information technology. A call to action because climate change is already upon us and time is getting shorter.

The Roadmap is not text created by professional negotiators. It was drafted in November 2016 by concerned and informed individuals who came together in Marrakech with the common cause to outline new ways to produce constructive change; in our own communities and countries; all over the world. It is not the final product. It is a beginning. The Roadmap enables you to join others; explains why and how we can all be active participants. The text is short. The mission is big.
