Join GEF for an exciting and interactive webinar to learn more about the pivotal discussions that will take place at this year’s Conference of the Parties in Katowice.
About the webinar:
Join us for an exciting and interactive webinar, where you will learn more about the all-important 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP)!
What exactly is the COP and what makes this year’s COP (held in Katowice, Poland), so crucial? What is the connection to the seminal United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released earlier this year?
These questions and more will be explored in this hour-long webinar with our expert speakers, who will offer perspectives from the Green and NGO point of view, as well as insights from behind the scences at this year’s COP.
You will also have the opportunity to pose your own questions to the speakers and exchange with other participants on all things COP-related.
With a deeper understanding of the COP, the IPCC report, and their implications for action on limiting climate change, you will be better equipped to take action yourself and influence the transition to a fair and sustainable society on a local and international level!
Oras Tynkkynen is a climate policy expert, having worked on climate action in a variety of different roles for the past 25 years.
Oras is currently a Committee Member of the European Green Party and substitute Member of the European Parliament, and will be offering a Green perspective on the COP, and first-hand insights into the debate.
Oras has also written for the Green European Journal, exploring the COP & IPCC report: the perfect pre-webinar reading!
