The summit would tackle “the threats of capitalism against life, climate change and the culture of life,” Morales, a leftwing populist who became the country’s first indigenous leader in 2006, told reporters in capital, La Paz.
The last such meeting in April 2010 was considered a reaction to a Copenhagen climate change summit which ended in bitter acrimony between rich and poor nations, with Morales among several leaders refusing to sign an agreement.
The 2010 Bolivia conference, which gathered several thousand attendees from civil society movements to government delegations, called for countries to cap warming to 1C and stabilise atmospheric concentrations of CO2 at 300 parts per million.
October’s meet will too publish a declaration, Morales said, seeking to sway envoys re-attempting a global climate pact binding all countries to emissions cuts.
In Paris this December, countries are seeking a deal to limit warming to 2C on pre-industrial levels, but analysts say voluntary national pledges aren’t sufficient to achieve this goal.
Bolivia has yet to submit its contribution to the UN.
