COP27 (the annual climate conference) this past November in Egypt was historic. For the first time, countries came together globally to create a ‘Loss and Damage’ Fund. Loss and Damage is the way the United Nations refers to environmental justice – providing support for countries that have experienced the worst of climate change, have the fewest resources to become resilient, and historically did the least to cause the problem.
QEW is sponsoring a forum to hear from five climate activists/advocates/policy analysts about their experience at the COP. Peniel Ibe (AFSC) and Wes Gobar (Yale School of the Environment) attended as part of the Black Hive, Clarence Edwards (FCNL) and Frank Granshaw (QEW) attended remotely, and Lindsey Cook (QUNO) has attended the past 9 COPs. They will share their perspectives and experiences.
Please note this event is at 1pm Eastern Time/ 10am Pacific.
