European Climate Diplomacy Day. International Climate Negotiations 101.

More than 190 countries will meet in Paris in December to reach an agreement on how to limit global temperature increase to below two degrees Celsius. But many people find the climate negotiations difficult to understand. This event aims to demystify the climate negotiations, and will include a chance to hear from different perspectives on climate issues – science, diplomacy and business. It is designed as a general introduction to the topics, for a non-specialist audience.
