International Non-Profits at the IPCC Conference

Climate Change Conference Coming to Edmonton - March 2018

This week on Terra Informa, we bring you the first instalment of our reporting on the 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Conference on Cities and Climate Change. This conference was hosted in Edmonton, AB from March 5-7th. We sent a team to dig up the best stories from the event, interviewing scientists, policy makers, and other movers-and-shakers like the Chair and Co-Chairs of the IPCC, leaders of non-governmental-organizations (NGOs), Indigenous activists, data specialists,  the mayor of Edmonton, radical youth, and more!

In this episode, we’ll be showcasing two representatives from climate-focused NGOs at the IPCC conference – the global research organization Future Earth, and a climate policy and global sustainability not-for-profit, New Climate Institute.

Future Earth

Terra Informers Charlotte Thomasson and Sydney Karbonik had the pleasure of sitting down with Anne-Helene Prieur-Richard, the regional director of global organization Future Earth’s Montreal Hub, to discuss international collaboration, Future Earth as an organization, and the research they are doing to address Global Sustainability and the Anthropocene.

NewClimate Institute

Sydney Karbonik spoke with Thomas Day, a founding partner of NewClimate Institute, about the diverse and immediate benefits of taking action against climate change. NewClimate Institute is an NGO that calls for action against climate change and aids the creation of sustainable development through research and knowledge.
