Webinar: Beyond the New Paris Agreement – Working with Local Stakeholders

March 9, 2016, 2pm EST


The Paris COP was a pivotal moment for the international climate movement with the creation of a framework for coordinated global action to limit climate change to 2 degrees of warming.  Local governments were recognized, engaged, and empowered throughout the roadmap leading to Paris and in the drafting of the Paris Agreement. History was made.  Now what?

This webinar will focus on the outcomes of the Paris COP as they relate to Canadian municipal governments and some of the non-government stakeholders that are important to realizing global and local climate goals.  Guest speakers will share the outcomes of the Paris COP as they relate to the sectors they work in, and discuss how local governments can use the outcomes of the Paris COP to better engage with local stakeholders.
