At the recent UN climate talks in Paris, non-state actors and governments were asked to accelerate partnerships and increase climate action on the ground. The goal: to launch a virtuous cycle of climate action, where demonstration of action on the ground encourages negotiators to make more ambitious pledges, which, in turn, generate even more action.
Please join us on Wednesday, March 2, 2016, 3:30–4:30PM in MIT Building E19-319 to learn more about the UN’s action agenda, from its origins to its emergence at COP21 to its potential future. Our distinguished speaker is Janos Pasztor, Senior Advisor to the UN Secretary‑General on Climate Change.
