Please join REthink Energy and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Director Morgan D. Bazilian presenting a virtual seminar titled International Reflections on the Outcome of COP-26 on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 7:00am (MT).
This seminar is part of the REthink Energy lecture series, which is co-organised by the IIEA and ESB. On this occasion, a distinguished panel, will reflect on the outcome of COP-26. In this conversation-style seminar, chaired by Alex White SC, chair of the IIEA Energy Group, the speakers will examine some of the major developments agreed in the Glasgow Climate Pact and will also discuss the significance of the sectoral coalitions formed during COP-26, such as the ‘Beyond Coal and Gas Alliance’ and the Global Methane Pledge. The panellists will provide a range of perspectives and will discuss the impact of COP-26 on Ireland’s climate priorities, on the EU’s Green Deal agenda, and on the international community, in particular, on least developed countries.
