PDX Virtual Bridge to COP25
December 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This year marks the 25th annual United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP25). Previous conferences have produced some of the most well-known and comprehensive international agreements for setting greenhouse gas emissions targets and increasing the ability of countries to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change.
COP25 will take place this December in Madrid, Spain, and communities like Portland are seeking to be involved in the conference via a series of virtual bridges. The Portland bridge includes two public gatherings that provide an opportunity for local people to experience what is taking place at COP25 and to have an impact on the proceedings by communicating with observers, delegates, and others attending the conference, as well as hearing from other local people doing climate work related to the international effort.
Also on Saturday Dec. 7, 10 am to 12 pm, at Ocean BlueCOP Program at Lewis & Clark College, Olin Hall 301.
Both events are free and open to the public, and registration is required.
