About this conference

In December, world leaders gathered in Copenhagen for the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

Environmental advocates, business leaders, and political pundits weighed in on the proceedings gavel-to-gavel: Did President Obama and the US play a big enough role? How did 'Climate-Gate' affect the discussion? Most important, did the gathered nations agree on a common framework and together commit to environmental change in a meaningful way? Or will the 'agreement' they struck allow them to pursue agendas of self-interest?

As the world responds to the events at COP15, invites you to enjoy programs on the many facets of climate change.

About COP15

The United Nations Climate Change Conference - Copenhagen, 2009 kicked off December 7th with a strong sense of confidence that countries can seal a comprehensive, ambitious and effective international climate change deal in Denmark and with an unprecedented sense of urgency to act on climate change. The highly anticipated conference marks a historic turning point on how the world confronts climate change, an issue with profound implications for the health and prosperity of all people.

The two-week meeting, the fifteenth Conference of the 193 Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the fifth meeting of the 189 Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, is the culmination of a process set in motion in Bali, where Parties to the UNFCCC agreed to conclude negotiations on a new global deal in Denmark in 2009.
