The 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly referred to as COP27, is now being held until November 18 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
But for those not heading to Egypt, you may join Southeast Alaska Conservation Council (SEACC), Tongass Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (TWECAN), 350 Juneau, and Juneau Alaska Youth For Environmental Action (AYEA) for the Juneau COP27 Meetup on Thursday, Nov. 17.
We will be holding this local event during COP27 to highlight how addressing the climate crisis means protecting old-growth forests, how we need permanent protections on the Tongass, and other topics. Spokespeople include Kashudoha Wanda Loescher Culp from WECAN, as well as members of 350 Juneau and AYEA.
The groups will meet at Overstreet Park — aka The Whale — on Nov. 17 from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to address climate change and field questions from regional media. See more details here.
Media members are encouraged to ask questions at the event, or, if they will not be present or are not located in Juneau, submit questions ahead of time to me at [email protected] or SEACC Communications Lead Lauren Cusimano at [email protected].
We hope to see you there!
