In light of President Trump’s recent announcement that the US will pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, the need for better international solutions to combat climate change is more pressing than ever. As we gear up for the next round of international climate negotiations, COP 23, due to be held in Fiji in November, the prospects for the Agreement are unclear.

How can the international community move forward, given the need to ratchet up greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets?

ANU is hosting Jacob Werksman, the European Commission’s chief climate advisor, next week to lead a discussion on the opportunities, challenges and likely outcomes of the upcoming negotiations. Workman’s presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A with a panel of experts.

With the devastating impacts of climate change becoming increasingly apparent, this event is not one to miss.

It will be held at 6pm on Tuesday October 24 at the Australian Centre on China in the World at Australian National University.

Tickets are free, but make sure you register to secure your seat.
