COP21: Turning point for the climate?

Join us for a debate about the value of the agreements made during COP21.

The discussion will explore:

  • Whether the negotiations met expectations
  • Whether the outcome from COP21 is a turning point for the climate – will they have an impact?
  • Should alternative approaches to those included in the Paris Agreement be considered?
  • What we can expect to see in the coming year from each country
  • What challenges lie ahead

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Elizabeth Dirth, Vice-Chair, 2050 Climate Group
  • Jelte Harnmeijer, Teaching Fellow in Carbon Economics, School of Geosciences, University of Edinburgh
  • Urte Macikene, Vice President Services, EUSA
  • David Reay, Professor of Carbon Management and Education Assistant Principal, Global Environment & Society, School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh (CHAIR)
  • Hannah Ritchie, Online Learning Educator, School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh
  • Annalisa Savaresi, Teaching Fellow in Global Environmental Law School of Law, University of Edinburgh

This public event is being organised as part of the University's Edinburgh Action for the Climate campaign, harnessing expertise at the University of Edinburgh to influence and inform the global debate around climate change.
