We're International, Baby!

1 minute to read

I’ve been to some pretty international conferences (cough International Student Energy Summit cough) but COP really takes the cake. In a blink of an eye, participants from the Amazon, Afghanistan and Algeria will saunter by with their posse, chattering away in a medley of languages, all with an intensity that has me imagining they are discussing the future of the world (actually, they probably are!).

To act on my feeling that so many incredible stories needed to be captured in a central place, I immediately created a “humansofCOP21 Instagram account”.  Check it out! It’s pretty simple – people tell me their name, their organization and why they’re at COP21. It helps distill down the noise of all the NGO-speak/diplomatic formality and keep it to real talk. Keep your eyes on the account to meet the faces of the Paris climate talks.
