Thanks so much for joining us last Tuesday for the COP 15 Briefing in Hobart. It is very difficult to give an indepth overview of a two week event in less than 2 hours, but hope through the presentation, the Q&A and the references below it gives you a much greater insight into some of the international leadership either via subnational governments and or the business community being provided in lieu of a binding international agreement, and what that all means to you, your business, your community and your family and the subsequent opportunities.
For those that did not manage to fill in a feedback form, if you have a minute, we’d love to hear from you. You can download the form here and return it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org once completed.
