Tuesday, June 7, 2016 — 3:30 pm: Climate Ethics after Paris — Intergenerational Equity, Global Cooperation and Responsible Enterprise
PLENARY HALL: LAKES BALLROOM
The Paris Agreement brings 195 nations into a collaborative framework and cites intergenerational equity as a principle for legitimate climate action. This could mean a new baseline for international law: actions that project harm and degradation into the future must be avoided. Global Youth have a right to a sustainable future.
Moderated conversation with Olav Kjørven, Director of Public Partnerships at UNICEF, and Abbie Plouff, Smaby Peace Scholar from the University of Minnesota. Moderated by Joseph Robertson, Global Strategy Director for Citizens’ Climate Lobby.
Session runs from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm.
