The Energy Policy Initiatives Center is co-hosting  a live interactive session to provide San Diego community leaders with an update on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP-15). This month’s Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen is the latest round of international discussions on climate change. Governor Schwarzenegger’s Climate Team will be attending this conference. The members of the Climate Team have agreed to participate in an interactive panel discussion to be transmitted live from Copenhagen. They will provide their perspectives on how the proceedings in Copenhagen might affect U.S. and California policies, including national emissions targets, cap-and-trade policies and more.

This is the only live discussion with the Climate Team that will be available to the public. It will be a unique opportunity for San Diego community leaders from the cleantech, business and other sectors to hear up-to-the-minute feedback from the State’s top policy makers on climate change. Attendees will be able to view the discussion from Copenhagen and ask questions through the moderators.
