In 2021, the ISC released a report the ISC’s engagement in UN processes led by Julia Marton-Lefèvre and a steering group. The report, ISC strategy in the intergovernmental system, gave 13 recommendations for the ISC. It’s now time to report on some of the progress of these recommendations and to inform you of some practical ways ISC members can increase their engagement or assist the ISC to have a strong voice in intergovernmental process.

Many of the issues outlined in the letter are still very relevant today. A 2022 letter could raise the issue of the need for leadership and planetary stewardship in the Anthropocene, based on the planetary emergency and growing inequalities. The campaign will also raise the profile of ISC Members.
