Reportback from Copenhagen: Next Steps for the Climate Movement.

Thursday January 28, 2010 @ 7:00 PM
First Church in Jamaica Plain Unitarian Universalist
6 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

Many people hoped that the December’s United Nation’s Climate Change  
Conference held in Copenhagen would generate a decisive global stance  
to curb the planet’s warming.  With world leaders joining journalists,  
policy makers, activists, business people, and grassroots  
stakeholders, the talks were varied and heated.  While some walked  
away claiming victory, others saw the conference as a failure to make  
critical changes in global climate policy.

A month after Copenhagen’s conclusion, we gather to talk with three  
Boston residents, one journalist and two activists, who attended the  
conference.  Smartmeme’s Doyle Canning, ACE’s Kalila Barnett, and The  
World’s Peter Thomson will share their stories and photos from both  
inside the Bella Center, and outside on the streets.

For those of us that weren’t at Copenhagen, this JP Forum will be a  
wonderful way to learn about what happened and what the next step is  
to challenge climate change.

Co-sponsored by Smart Meme and Alternatives for Community &  
Environment (ACE)

Attached is the Press Release.

Thank you.
