COP21 CLIMATE NEGOTIATIONS REPORT BACK:

At the end of 2015, countries from around the world convened in Paris for the 21st time to reach an agreement on the urgent crisis of climate change. While some groups heralded the deal, others criticized it for not being enough to halt a dangerous increase in our earth's temperature. Join us to hear WE ACT staff, members, and others from the It Takes Roots Delegation discuss their experiences and takeaways from the international event.
