The Vision — Changing the Tone of the Conversation – Environmental Educator – Christiana Figueres: The inside story of the Paris Climate Agreement

Marrakech November 7-18, 2016

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

 
In preparing for COP 22 hosted by Morocco, held in Marrakech November 7-18, 2016, where work will proceed on national climate change strategies [NDIC], here is vision articulated by 21st Century Environmental Educator Christiana Figures.  What are your thoughts, what’s  happening with your country’s National Climate strategy? 
 
˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜

“What would you do if your job was to save the planet? When Christiana Figueres was tapped by the UN to lead the Paris climate conference (COP 21) in December 2015, she reacted the way many people would: she thought it would be impossible to bring the leaders of 195 countries into agreement on how to slow climate change. Find out how she turned her skepticism into optimism — and helped the world achieve the most important climate agreement in history.” 
 

All the best,
Pam Puntenney and Bremley Lyngdoh
