The Workings of the UN Climate Change Conference


Promotion for the upcoming Climate Change Conference in Paris has started, and its message is clear: the clock is ticking, and it's time to establish concrete steps to protect our world from a plethora of irreversible, catastrophic situations. As established by many world leaders and researchers, we can no longer view elements such as politics, economy and ecology, separately. A holistic view is needed to grasp the full reach and impact of our actions on the world around us, and organizations worldwide have been brainstorming, researching and establishing concrete steps needed to assure minimizing the impact of climate change on society. This article will focus on the organization of the Climate Change Conference, which is the main force behind the instigation of a call for action. The basics of civil engagement and the structuring agency of the United Nations will be covered, as well as an overview of the procedures that took place in Lima, Peru in 2014 and the ongoing work leading up to the anticipated Conference in Paris next November.
