Climate Change & International Relations Conference Announced

A conference is being held in Brussels on 11 November entitled: “A Global Contract Based on Climate Justice – The Need for a New Approach Concerning International Relations.”

The conference aims to highlight the ongoing need for international agreement and collaboration in the fight against climate change, given that it is known to worsen existing global inequality. It is hoped that a post-2012 agreement will result in much greater progress towards global sustainable development.

Notable speakers at the event include Lord Nicholas Stern, Pavan Sukhdev, and Hans Joachim.

The conference will be held in the Hemicycle of the European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium on 11 November 2008.

Registration for the event is essential but free, available at
