Unpacking COP21: What it meant for the world and what it means for you

admin/ January 24, 2016/ UTERN News/ 0 comments

On January 29, a diverse panel of speakers will help us bring the conversation on climate home. “Unpacking COP21” aims to examine and understand the Paris Climate Summit that took place this past December: what it meant for the world and what it means for you.


Making up the panel are:
– Erin Flanagan, director of federal policy at the Pembina Institute
– Dr. Joseph Heath, University of Toronto professor in the Dept of Philosophy and School of Public Policy and Governance
– Heather Milton-Lightning, Indigenous scholar and human rights activist
– Ben Donato-Woodger, delegate at COP21 in Paris and climate justice activist
– Dr. Danny Harvey, University of Toronto professor of climate change

Together, the panelists will provide the perfect ‘climate’ for a comprehensive discussion on COP21 and its implications. They will also each lead their own small seminar, providing students with d opportunity to intimately engage with a more narrowed topic related to climate change.

Hors d’oeuvres, coffee and tea will be served, and live music will be present to greet all participants.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about your future on this planet, and the role you can have in preserving it.

This event is open to all University of Toronto students. Register for free at EventBrite.
