In Article 6, the convention calls on governments to educate, empower and engage all stakeholders and major groups on policies relating to climate change.  The elements of Article 6 – education, training, public access to information, public awareness, public participation and international cooperation on climate action – are referred to as Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE).
