This Month's Speaker is Christiana Figueres, former UNFCCC Executive Secretary
Please free to attend the national call, the chapter meeting or (we hope) both.
Some highlights of this month's meeting:
Monthly Speaker: With President-elect Joe Biden vowing to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement in January — and as we celebrate the 5-year anniversary of that accord — we turn to Christiana Figueres to get an overview of where things stand globally on national commitments to fight climate change and what's needed going forward. Figueres was Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) from 2010 until 2016, during which she marshaled 196 countries to sign the Paris accord in 2015. Following her tenure with the UNFCCC, she co-founded Global Optimism, which "exists to catalyse transformative actions in our world" to tackle climate change.
Here's the full draft agenda. Please Note - It won't be final until Friday.
