University of Iowa graduate students Andrea Cohen and Nick Fetty discussed their trip to Paris for the COP21 climate conference last week during a presentation hosted at the University of Northern Iowa.
Cohen, who represented the Iowa United Nations Association at the conference, talked about the importance of carbon literacy in helping everyday Iowans address climate change. Cohen looked to a program in Manchester, United Kingdom: The Carbon Literacy Project, which she was introduced to during a presentation at COP21.
Fetty, a graduate student in the University of Iowa School of Journalism & Mass Communication, talked about his efforts to tell stories from COP21 through daily updates at the IowaEnvironmentalFocus blog. During COP21 Fetty interviewed UI researcher and CGRER co-founder Jerry Schnoor, Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie and Dubuque Mayor Roy Buol. You can see his interviews and more content from COP21 at the CGRER YouTube page.
