Call to Action - Climate and COP21
“The Climate Blueprint” and Expert Panel Discussion for European Climate Diplomacy Day
2015 is an important year for climate negotiations. It is essential to secure a fair, ambitious and legally binding international agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) at the Conference of Parties (COP21) to keep us on track to limit global temperature rises to below 2°C.
The European Union and its Member States will be hosting a simultaneous event in seven cities throughout Australia on 17 June 2015 as part of ongoing efforts to promote informed debate about climate change in the lead up to this year’s decisive meeting at Paris in December.
“The Climate Blueprint” documentary retraces the history of climate negotiations, outlines what’s at stake and the main actors, and is a strong call for action to reach a global consensus on climate change in Paris. The screening on the 17th June will be Australia’s premiere of the film, which will be followed by a panel discussion on climate change by leading experts from the scientific, private and political communities of South Australia.
Panel members include Professor Chris Daniels, Dr Constance Lever-Tracy, Mr Dess Pearson, Ms Helen Dyer, and Mr Eric Soulier. The panel will be moderated by Professor Anthony Elliott, Executive Director of the Hawke EU Centre for Mobilities, Migrations and Cultural Transformations, University of South Australia.
