In December, the United Nations 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) met in Paris, where nearly 200 nations ratified a new universal climate change agreement with the goal of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. For the first time since the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, the world came together to adopt a healthy, sustainable future.
The Promise of Paris, the second in our two-part series “Connecting Wisconsin and the UN Climate Talks” reconvenes our panel of Wisconsin leaders from the December 3rd Live from Paris event. Representing interests in public health, human rights, business, and government, these panelists offer valuable behind-the-scenes impressions and reflections on the outcomes of COP21.
Recorded at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery in Madison on February 9, 2016, The Promise of Paris is presented by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters and the University of Wisconsin Global Health Institute.
