Please join us in welcoming IPS staff and guests home from the UN climate summit held in Durban, South Africa this past December. While some are touting the outcome of the negotiations as a success, others have raised serious concerns about a lack of urgency and equity in tackling the climate crisis. Panelists will give their perspectives on what was won and lost for people and the planet.
