Successful Post Paris Climate Change Forum
February 26 2016

Urgent global action to address climate change is more likely as a result of the Paris Climate Change summit.

This was a key message from the Deakin Edge forum  sponsored by the NRCL.

The forum, hosted by Professor Ross Garnaut, discussed the ecological, financial and legal drivers of that  change.

Three eminent speakers (Malte Meinhausen, Nick Wood and Sarah Barker)  provided insightful analysis of the state of play following Paris and outlined the challenges and the forces driving change on the global stage in relation to climate change.

Over 150 people attended the forum which was organised by the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS)- the professional society for meteorologists and oceanographers.

For those who missed it, here is footage of the forum.
