What were the Copenhagen negotiations all about? What was it like to be there and how do the negotiations really operate? What does the agreement mean for future climate change policy? This December Yale had a major presence at Copenhagen, with over fifty students and several faculty and staff members attending in various capacities: supporting national delegations, working for the secretariat, blogging, lobbying, and learning about the process. Come hear personal accounts of these experiences as well as analysis of the conference outcomes and process. Short panel presentations will be followed by an extensive question and answer session.
