A Political Discussion on the Road to the COP21" starring:
- Hon. Mary POLAK, B.C. Environment Minister
- Nicolas CHAPUIS, newly appointed Ambassador of France to Canada

Michaël SMALL, Executive director of Renewable Cities and Carbon Talks will moderate the panel.
A Q&A session with the audience will follow the panel discussion. Some questions from Twitter will also be selected. To participate virtually, please use the hash tag #COP21.
The December 2015 Conference of the Parties (COP21) will be one of the most important international climate conferences ever. The stakes are high: with new evidence that we will surpass the global 2C temperature increase targets, COP21 represents our best hope for a binding agreement between countries. This Conference could set the conditions for a transition towards resilient, low-carbon societies and economies.
