IRP Fellows to Report on Marrakech Climate Change Talks at DC panel on December 8th
Join us at our new headquarters to hear from our recently-returned IRP Fellows about their experience reporting from Marrakech, Morocco.
The International Reporting Project is pleased to present two leading environmental journalists who have just returned from two weeks covering the 22nd Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) talks in Marrakech, Morocco, where delegates from 196 countries discussed the future of global climate change negotiations.
Journalists Zachary Colman and Susan Phillips, each of whom filed numerous reports from Marrakech, will discuss the impact on the conference of Donald Trump’s election and how COP22 delegates and climate change activists see the future of global climate change negotiations in the wake of the US elections. Glendora Meikle led a group of five IRP Fellows covering Marrakech, and will bring her perspective as moderator of this discussion.
RSVP for the in-person or livestreaming of the event here.

The Marrakech program was a collaboration of IRP and the Stanley Foundation.
