ECO has been banned from COP because it is “paperless”. Sneaking into the venue and walking through the halls, ECO saw people handing out paper flyers about upcoming side events, paper-wrapped chocolate, and glossy papery brochures. The conference venue exhibits and delegation spaces are piled high with papery materials for distribution. In fact, the only two publications not allowed in the now “paperlight” COP are ECO and the Third World Network Bulletin. How very strange. ECO is very sad about this. We would like to come back into the cosy COP venue with you, instead of being shut out in a cold and shrinking space. ECO hopes you may be able to kindly raise this matter to the UNFCCC Secretariat.
