Alliance to hold forum on Poznan climate change talks

With killer floods hitting Cagayan de Oro and the sights and sounds of powerful typhoons that wrought havoc on Luzon still fresh in our memories, here’s something that should enrich our knowledge and compel us to take action:

The Philippine Climate Watch Alliance (PCWA) invites the media and the public to a forum on the Climate Change talks in Poznan.

Titled “Probing the United Nations Climate Change Negotiations in Poznan: Prospects for Philippine Communities and Civil Society Organizations”, the forum will be held on January 20, 2009, 9:00 am to 12:00 noon at Balay Kalinaw’s Seminar Room C, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.

Forum speakers include delegates and observers to the Poznan round of talks, which the UN said sought to shape an ambitious and effective international response to climate change.

Poznan is a major city in Poland and venue of the negotiations.

Those interested may contact the PCWA secretariat through telephone numbers 9209099 or 9248756, or via email at pcwa (dot) secretariat at gmail (dot) com.
