Next Week: Green For All Reports From Durban

Authors: Green For All Next week, the world gathers in South Africa to discuss the greatest threat it faces: climate change.

The 17th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 17, for short) will be meeting in Durban with the goal of setting standards that can reel in carbon emissions and, ideally, halt global warming. And Green For All will be there.

Rosa Gonzalez from our staff and Green For All Fellow Jameelah Muhammad will be reporting back from the conference as they attend workshops, talk to international activists and host a discussion. We can't conquer this problem by ourselves. We hope that, by being on the ground in South Africa, we can contribute to the conversation and, more importantly, bring back best practices from around the world. We also hope to learn more about South Africa's green economy - and how they work to lift people out of poverty. Stay tuned! Early next week, we'll have more to report - including our first dispatches from Rosa and Jameelah. Earth Horizon
