Wednesday, November 21st from 2:00-3:00 pm EST (please note the time change!) US youth will have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Jonathan Pershing, the State Department’s Deputy Special Envoy for Climate Change. Dr. Pershing has served since 2009 as one of the lead US negotiators at the UN climate negotiations. This Q&A will provide a unique opportunity for young people around the country to ask Dr. Pershing about the future of a UN climate treaty, recommendations for climate advocacy domestically and abroad, and more!
This is an exciting opportunity to make some progress and open dialogue before COP18, and we welcome any who wish to join us, although please be aware space is limited.
Please RSVP here and we will send you the conference call details.
If you would like to submit a question before the call please include it in the RSVP form. The SustainUS delegation will prioritize the questions.
