IWAU/NRESi Colloquium. Gender and Participation at COP21 - Claire Martin, former CBC Senior Meteorologist
November 18, 2016
Claire Martin had the opportunity to attend COP21 in France at the end of 2015, at the request of the Green Party of Canada and the newly minted Liberal government, to help Canada negotiate a new global climate plan. Inside the damp, cold, testosterone filled tarp covered walkways around the COP21 temporary facilities, Claire had the opportunity to watch world leaders wrestle over the terms of a legal document that will affect us for generations. But what about the women? Were they heard? Claire will introduce you to the "other" battle going on at COP21.
