ABOUT THIS SERIES:
 
To avoid an irreversible climate catastrophe, representatives from over 200 countries and NGOs will gather in Glasgow this November to negotiate a global plan of action. With wildfires in Siberia, floods in Germany, and heat waves around the world, climate change is no longer some distant threat – it is causing devastating harm to people, communities and the natural world. The urgency is clear, but countries have very different views on how to move forward. In this speaker series, global climate leaders will discuss the negotiation strategies of developing nations, India, China, the U.S. and the EU. 
 
This workshop series is co-hosted by the Bacon Environmental Program at the Center for Public Leadership, Climate@HKS, the Belfer Center’s Environment and Nature Resources Program and CEE PIC.
