Every year since 2009, a delegation of observers composed of faculty, students and staff has attended the annual United Nations Climate Change Convention’s Conference of the Parties (COP), where countries negotiate on how to reduce climate change causing greenhouse gas emissions.
This year, the meetings were held in November in Bonn, Germany, at the COP23.
York University observers from COP23 and previous COPs will share their observations about the state of global negotiations during a special debrief event on Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018, from 11:30am to 1pm, in Room 749, Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, Kaneff Tower, Keele campus.
York University community members are invited to attend and hear about the Youth Climate Report project founded by York University PhD candidate and documentary filmmaker Mark Terry. There will also be a presentation that will cover an effort by a consortium of Ontario universities to develop a new field course for science students to attend the Climate Change negotiations.
