Point Blue was honored to be accepted this summer as an NGO Observer Organization to the UN’s global body that addresses climate change—the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). The UNFCCC engages almost every nation in the world to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement, Kyoto Accords, and other international efforts to solve the climate crisis.

I am thrilled to be representing Point Blue for this year’s Conference of the Parties (COP23) and will be traveling next week to Bonn, Germany for the meetings. I will also be representing my town of San Anselmo, California as a member of its Sustainability Commission at the Local and Regional Governments meetings through ICLEI.

In Bonn, I’ll have the opportunity to interact with some of the 20,000 expected attendees from across the globe, including government delegates and many of our national and international conservation colleagues.

I am excited to be presenting on a panel organized by our partners at The Nature Conservancy with Climate Resolve about California’s successful climate policies and practices.  I’ll be reporting about some of Point Blue’s collaborative, nature-based approaches on a global stage.

You can follow me on Twitter @ecohenpointblue with a special hashtag #BonnBlue where I will share my observations and insights live from Bonn with you!

Thank you for your generous support that makes Point Blue’s innovative and collaborative climate-smart conservation science possible!
