Event description

UNAA Victoria invites you to this important panel discussion as we move between the achievements of COP 24 to the UN Climate Summit in September.

“Katowice has shown once more the resilience of the Paris Agreement, our solid roadmap for climate action,” said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

The UN Climate summit will look at six areas - energy transition; climate finance and carbon pricing; industry transition; nature-based solutions; cities and local action and resilience.

What will be the impact on Australian Government policy? Will corporate players continue to sign up to new initiatives embracing renewable energy and investment?

Expert speakers who attended COP24 will lead this discussion, which will be moderated by Emily Gerrard, leading Climate Change lawyer and Director of the Comhar Group.

Panel members:

Patrick Suckling, Ambassador for the Environment, Australian Government

Kate Dooley, Researcher, Australian German Climate and Energy College, University of Melbourne

4.30-6.30pm, Wednesday 13 February
