CSU graduate students to present research at United Nations climate talks / Colorado State University / Warner College of Natural Resources

“The path to this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference has been a little rocky. But despite the last-minute change in venue – from Santiago, Chile, to Madrid, Spain – a dozen graduate students from Colorado State University will attend and take part in the climate talks, also known as the Conference of the Parties or COP. The conference runs Dec. 2-13.

They’ve been schooled on the ins and outs of the international gathering through a class taught by CSU Associate Professor Gillian Bowser in conjunction with Clark University Associate Professor Elisabeth Gilmore and Professor Sarah Green of Michigan Technological University. This will be the 10th trip to the COP for Bowser.

The class is not a primer on international travel. Bowser, Gilmore and Green charged the students with conducting research on the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, which serve as a call to action for countries around the world. Each team of students includes individuals from CSU, Clark and MTU. They’ll present their findings at press conferences held at the COP.”

#ClimateChange ==> “Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.”
