YPFP Brussels - Climate change: Running out of time in the run up to Durban?

December 01, 2011 07:00 pm



Young Professionals in Foreign Policy - Brussels in partnership with The United States Mission to the European Union, wish to invite you to a Policy Dialogue:

Climate change: Perspectives in the run-up to Durban and beyond 
on Thursday, 1 December 2011, 19:00, followed by a drink reception
at the US Mission to the EU  

The Durban Summit has focused the public eye on global mechanisms to prevent climate change and curb carbon emissions. Expectations for a deal that could replace the Kyoto agreement, which expires at the end of next year, are low as politicians and business leaders struggle to come to an agreement.

The European Union is among many states examining the best approach to carbon reduction goals. The global business community is observing negotiations intently as well. Can the Euro-Atlantic area provide the necessary leadership to forge a way forward? 

Speakers include
Nicholas Gazulis, Environment, Scientific and Technical Affairs Officer, US Mission to the EU
Samuel Flückiger, Associate, European Climate Foundation
Representative of the Embassy of South Africa to the EU (TBC)
European Commission Representative (TBC)

Places are limited and will be allocated on a strict first-come, first-served basis.
Please RSVP by 29 November by emailing brussels@ypfp.org please include your full name, organisation, date of birth, place of birth and ID number.
