Panel Session on "Climate Change Policy in a Post-Kyoto Protocol World"

  • October 24, 2007 · 7:00 PM
  • SAIS Bernstein-Offit Building

Hello, all Please consider joining us for this special October 24th UN Week event on "Climate Change Policy in a post-Kyoto Protocol World". This should be of special interest to our Asian Going Out Group membership, as many of the nations affected most by climate change negotiations are on the Asian continent. Feel free to share this invitation with your friends and colleagues as well. Sincerely, Mark Flanigan, Organizer ============================================================= The United Nations Association - National Capital Area's (UNA-NCA) Young Professionals for International Cooperation invites to you attend a panel session on "Climate Change Policy in a post-Kyoto Protocol World" during the upcoming United Nations Week in Washington, D.C. The issue of climate change impacts every segment of society and has become intrinsically intertwined with policy considerations domestically as well as internationally. This panel is timely, as it follows discussions about varying strategies to tackle climate change at the United Nations General Assembly and the meeting convened by the United States, both held in September 2007. This panel will also precede the United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in Bali, Indonesia in December 2007 that will involve devising a path for a global climate framework beyond the Kyoto Protocol that expires in 2012. This panel session will bring together policymakers, business leaders, and researchers in a discussion on the direction of Climate Change policy internationally in the upcoming years. The panel speakers for this event will involve representatives from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and an entrepreneur involved in the business of carbon trading. Following this panel session, a Question and Answer session and reception will take place. This free event will be held on Wednesday, October 24th, 2007 from 7:00 to 9:00PM at the John Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), located in the Bernstein-Offit Building on 1717 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. To RSVP, please send contact Mark Flanigan at Mark [dot] Flanigan [at] hhs [dot] gov and Stacey Chow at stacechow [at] gmail [dot] com with the subject line "Climate Change Panel Session". This event is being co-sponsored by the Sejong Society, a non-profit corporation dedicated to help young professionals learn more about U.S.-Korean Affairs.

    Very informative, timely and engaging discussion of climate change policy post-2012, beyond the Kyoto Protocol. 4 diverse subject matter experts from the UN, US Government, venture capitalist and NGO communities shared their various perspectives with a very attentive and well-informed audience. Thank you to everyone who showed up!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
