The Paris Climate Talks culminated in universal acceptance of a UN agreement to limit global warming to below 2C for the first time ever. A panel of ANU students who were at the talks will discuss the significance of the agreement, what’s happened since then and what needs to happen for Australia and the world to meet their targets. This will be followed a Q&A session with the panel.
Pizza will be provided after the event.
