The December 2015 Conference of the Parties (COP21) will be one of the most important international climate conferences ever. The stakes are high: with new evidence that we will surpass the global 2°C temperature increase targets, COP21 represents our best hope for a binding agreement between countries. This Conference could set the conditions for a transition towards resilient, low-carbon societies and economies.

This Conference needs to mark a decisive step forward in the negotiation of the future international agreement that will enter into force in 2020, adopting its major thrusts with the aim that all countries, including the greatest greenhouse gas emitters.

Our public dialogue, which took place on Thursday, March 26 at the Asia-Pacific Hall at the Wosk Centre for Dialogue in Vancouver, featured three panelists who represent perspectives from local to global.

Nicolas Chapuis, French Ambassafor to Canada
Mary Polak, BC Minister of Environment
Gregor Robertson, Mayor of Vancouver

Moderated by Michael Small, Executive Director of Carbon Talks and Renewable Cities
