Your Window Into Marrakech: The Final Week of Negotiations

cop22-cg-team
Craig, Siiri, Isabel, Johanna and SES student Justin have had several opportunities to connect at COP22. Each of them is bringing their passion, energy and advocacy forward in all the conference spaces they can to call for continued, robust international action on climate change.

The UN COP22 Climate Change Conference is now in the final week of negotiations. As negotiators begin the work of turning the Paris Agreement into a pathway forward towards a zero-carbon economy, several high-level diplomats will be flying in for COP22’s final days. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is expected in Marrakech today and tomorrow, where he will be delivering a speech on the importance of global action on climate change. Diplomats from other countries, including China, have recently made clear their lasting commitment to the Paris Agreement, with or without the U.S.’s future participation. The determination to move forward endures.

Yesterday, November 14, was Education Day at COP22, and our delegation participated in several events designed to build momentum around the importance of advancing climate change education as a means of reaching countries’ emissions reduction goals. Check out their blogs below for the details!
