DESCRIPTION: The U of T student delegates to the COP21 climate change conference in Paris in December, 2015, as well as delegate Professor Stephen Scharper, will discuss their experience and analysis of COP21 – what was accomplished and what still needs to be addressed. The outcome from COP21 is regarded as crucial in addressing urgent climate change issues, particularly in light of the failure of COP16 in Copenhagen, in 2009, to do so.
