International Media Briefing: Half way on the Road to Paris – where are we and where do we need to be

19 May 2015

Ahead of the UN climate negotiations getting underway on June 1, Climate Action Network experts will brief reporters on the state of play in international climate politics and what that means for the Bonn talks.

WhenThursday May 28th, 9am London  – 10am Berlin – 11am Addis Ababa – 1.30pm New Delhi – 4pm Beijing – 8pm Sydney.  You can check your timezone here. (In the Americas? Join the sister call by contacting )
