UN Climate Change Talks: How Can They Succeed?

This is your opportunity to hear from two people who were at the Warsaw summit and find out more about U.N. climate change talks looking ahead to Lima and Paris.
 
Richard Dixon, Director of Friends of the Earth Scotland, and Jo O'Neill, Policy Officer at Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF) will each give talks on Wednesday 22nd January. 
 
The UN climate change talks in Warsaw, Poland, during December were disappointing to say the least. We got the clear impression that most governments are not taking climate change seriously.
 
But they are the only show in town if we are to get the binding treaty we need at the 2015 talks in Paris.
 
On the positive side the united walk-out by civil society organisations showed the determination we need to build enough popular pressure by then. 
 
Come along and hear more!
