Who can become a WWViews National or Regional partner?
To become a partner in the WWViews Alliance, an organisation should have the following qualities:
- Independence of specific interests - may these be stakeholder interests, political parties, social groups etc. - in the issue of climate change. Organisations that cannot live up to this must form an alliance with other organisations in their region/country in order balance it out. Policy makers in your country should trust the result of the citizen consultation to be the product of a neutral and unbiased process.
- Have the professional skills necessary to perform a national citizen participation process in a fair and methodologically consistent manner.
- Based on non-profit – meaning that there are no owners who profit from any kind of overhead. We accept institutions, which may seek an overhead from external funding, if this overhead stays in the institution to support other non-profit activities.
- A reputation as serious, professional, trust-worthy and effective organisation.
