The UN climate summit in Katowice, Poland features a grand sideshow, with all sorts of groups making presentations to whoever shows up. Some countries and groups even have permanent pavilions.

Here are just a few examples, to give you the flavor of the wishes. These are the official announcements of the panel presentations.
