Many people hoped that the December’s United Nation’s Climate Change Conference held in Copenhagen would generate a decisive global stance to curb the planet’s warming. With world leaders joining journalists, policy makers, activists, business people, and grassroots stakeholders, the talks were varied and heated. While some walked away claiming victory, others saw the conference as a failure to make critical changes in global climate policy.
A month after Copenhagen’s conclusion, we gather to talk with three Boston residents, one journalist and two activists, who attended the conference. Smartmeme’s Doyle Canning, ACE’s Kalila Barnett, and The World’s Peter Thomson will share their stories and photos from both inside the Bella Center, and outside on the streets.
For those of us that weren’t at Copenhagen, this JP Forum will be a wonderful way to learn about what happened and what the next step is to challenge climate change.
