About the event:
2022 ended with Conferences of the Parties of both the UN Climate Change Conference and the UN Biodiversity Conferences. These large-scale events are a core part of the long-term strategy for advancing environmental sustainability through international negotiation and agreement. We have two participants from the COP 15 of the UNBC held in Montreal in December: Dr. David Castle and Dr. Stuart Smyth. David was part of the official Canadian Delegation while Stuart was there as an expert as part of an industrial group sponsored by Crop Life International. Professor, Peter Phillips will moderate a conversation on their experience and reflections on the COP model of advancing public policy.
