A Political Discussion on the Road to the COP21
You’re invited to join the French Consulate General in Vancouver, Carbon Talks, and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions for a free public dialogue.
The December 2015 Conference of the Parties (COP21) will be one of the most important international climate conferences ever. The stakes are high: with new evidence that we will surpass the global 2C temperature increase targets, COP21 represents our best hope for a binding agreement between countries. This Conference could set the conditions for a transition towards resilient, low-carbon societies and economies.
This Conference needs to mark a decisive step forward in the negotiation of the future international agreement that will enter into force in 2020, adopting its major thrusts with the aim that all countries, including the greatest greenhouse gas emitters – both developed and developing countries – should be bound for the first time by a universal climate agreement
On the road to the COP21, French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS program from the French Consulate General in Vancouver, Carbon Talks and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions will organize an exclusive panel discussion at SFU on March, 26th starring:
- Hon. MARY POLAK, B.C. Minister of Environment [biography]
- GREGOR ROBERTSON, Mayor of Vancouver [biography]
- NICOLAS CHAPUIS, Newly appointed Ambassador of France to Canada [biography]
MICHAEL SMALL, Carbon Talks and Renewable Cities Executive Director [biography] will moderate the panel.
This free public talk and discussion will engage the public to reflect on this fundamental question: “From Local to Global Challenges, What Needs to Be Done for a Successful Climate Conference in Paris 2015?“.
