Register for this Event  

Join the Christian Science Monitor for a conversation with Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the official charged with bringing 195 nations together to agree on a global climate plan, on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The theme of the talk will be the state of global energy and climate heading into the Paris climate talks. Where do we stand with less than a month until diplomats meet in Paris to finalize an international climate agreement? Executive Secretary Figueres will give us an update on the negotiations and share her perspectives on what needs to happen during and after the summit in early December.

The talk is free and open to the public. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for networking. Have a question you’d like to ask Ms. Figueres? Email David Unger at Mr. Unger will be hosting the talk, and is curious to hear what topics you’d like to see addressed.
