Sough2020 (/s/) (also known as the Sough2020 Convention on Global Climate Change) was a digital summit focusing on the creation, signing and ratification of the Sough Convention on Global Climate Change Volume II: a treaty aimed towards micronational action regarding climate change, pollution and negative human interactions with the natural world. The convention was conceived by Logan Ross on 9 October 2020, partially in response to the La Salle Convention from the beginning of October 2020 and inspired by the Paris Agreement of 2016. The treaty has been translated into 5 languages.

Sough2020 served as the successor to the Sough Convention on Global Climate Change, 2019 also created by Logan Ross as part of a similar convention hosted by the North Atlantic Defence Union in October 2019. Sough2020's long-term goals are to lower micronational carbon footprints through indirect means such as encouraging greener forms of transportation. Despite this, Sough2020 does not solely focus on the lowering of carbon footprints. Subjects such as pollution, environmental destruction, mass extinction of species and other forms of negative impacts on the natural world from human interaction are covered.

Like other treaties in the micronational community such as the Wrythe Convention, signatories do not simply by signing the convention and treaty extend any recognition to co-signatories, due to the "collective desire to ensure the survival of the natural world, and consequently, the human race" transcending any diplomatic differences between micronations.

Sough2020 was initially conceived on 1 October 2020; however, the convention wasn't formally declared until 9 October 2020. In total, 6 meetings discussing and planning the creation of the final Sough2020 treaty took place between 11 October 2020 and 21 November 2020, lasting 42 days in total. Despite the fact that creation of the treaty began on 1 October 2020, final compilation and editing took place on 22 November 2020, with the treaty being presented to participating nations on 26 November 2020. The contents of the Sough Convention on Global Climate Change Volume II formally entered into effect within signatory states on 1 December 2020. As of 26 November 2020, 31 nations took part in the Sough2020 convention.[b]

Etymology

An image of the Aenopian town of Sough as seen from Google Maps.

The full name of Sough Convention of Global Climate Change Volume II came from the name of the convention's predecessor, Sough Convention on Global Climate Change 2019. This was a joint virtual summit hosted by the North Atlantic Defence Union on 29 September 2019, culminating in the creation of a treaty highlighting micronational action against climate change. This was attended and signed by 4 member states of NADU: Aenopia, Ponderosa Hills, Malinovia and New Eiffel.

The name Sough comes from the Aenopian town of the same name located in the Aenopian territory of Aenopian Calver which was annexed on 26 July 2019. The name of the town comes from the name of an adjacent shop run by retail brand SPAR.[1] Sough further derives itself from an underground basin which collects water from several lead-mine soughs which runs through the village of Calver before running into the River Derwent.[2] Sough can also mean to make a long high or low sound while moving, particularly whilst referring to the wind or the sea.[3] Other uses of the name Sough include a Hamlet located in Lancashire, England[4] and an underground channel for draining water out of a mine.[5]

The name of the convention and treaty differs. The full name of the treaty is the Sough Convention of Global Climate Change Volume II, whilst the official name of the convention is Sough2020. However, the two may be interchangeable to a certain degree. Other names which have been used for the treaty and convention include Sough2020 Convention and Sough Convention.
