Event Details

In 2015, France will be hosting and presiding the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11), otherwise known as “Paris 2015” from November 30th to December 11th. COP21 will be a crucial conference, as it needs to achieve a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. France will therefore be playing a leading international role to ensure points of view converge and to facilitate the search for consensus by the United Nations, as well as within the European Union, which has a major role in climate negotiations. 

While the focus will be on Paris, the implications will affect all of us. Even though Melbourne is almost as far as it could possibly be from the site of the UN Convention, the decisions will also need our commitment and willingness to change in order for their objectives to be achieved.

To encourage debate about the event, its purpose and its possible outcomes, the European Union Centre at RMIT is delighted to partner with Alliance Française de Melbourne [and with the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FACCI)] to host an event focused on Paris 2015.

Speakers at the event will include Dr Hartmut Fuengeld, Centre for Urban Research at RMIT; Ms Amandine Denis, Head of Research at ClimateWorks Australia; and representatives from Victorian Government and French Industry. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.

Light refreshments will be served from 5:30pm for a 6pm start.

Please RSVP by Tuesday 13 October for catering purposes.
