Bretton Woods Action Team II

In 2023, Citizens’ Climate International formed an international action team that is connecting with the divisions of their Executive Directors at the World Bank.

Why? The World Bank is undergoing an evolution process. We are in a transformative moment in history where we could decolonize the global financial systems.

In Part I of our 2023 Bretton Woods Project, volunteers from 31 countries contacted the office of their executive directors at the World Bank asking for fair and sustainable development.  Then some of us attended the Spring Meetings at the World Bank and listened deeply. Thereafter we chose to continue this project, and continue pushing for more reforms.

The deadline for this project is now June 28, 2023.

Bretton Woods Action Team Part 1

From March 15, 2023 to April 10, 2023 volunteers from 31 countries contacted to their divisions at the World Bank. Here was their request:

We are taxpayers and therefore stakeholders in the World Bank. On behalf of CCI, we request the World Bank

  1. Support the Bridgetown Initiative of the Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Mottley. It is gaining support and beginning to work.
  2. Ground all reforms in human rights and gender equality.
  3. Give citizens the opportunity to share meaningful input into the reforms. This must go beyond the World Bank Civil Society meetings.
  4. Investigate how money can be dispensed directly to households in need and then develop an implementation plan to support the activation of such policies.
