The event series "NRW Climate Lounge" offers events alongside COP23 on nine weekdays from 5 – 7 p.m.
COP23 has come to an end after two intensive weeks. Now is the time to take stock of the situation and dare to envision COP24 in Katowice, Poland, in December 2018. The Wuppertal Institute will provide an overview of the results and an outline of the challenges ahead to conclude the NRW Climate Lounge. What has been achieved? Where have we begun to move in the right direction? What was the atmosphere like at the conference after the US announced that it wanted to drop out of the Paris Agreement? Who were the main supporters and drivers of the process? Were the conditions for a successful COP24 prepared, where stock will be taken for the first time to assess national and regional climate protection objectives? These issues and similar ones should be illuminated at the end of the event series. State Secretary Jochen Flasbarth of the Federal Ministry fort he Envorinment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) will be a guest at the closing event on 17 November 2017.
Moderator: Prof. Dr. Manfred Fischedick, Vice-President, Wuppertal Institute
