Today was our first day at the 22nd annual Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which started on Monday. Texas Impact had staff in the Blue Zone, where the official negotiations occur, as well as in the Green Zone, which is more open to the public and features exhibits, presentations, and interactive engagement opportunities.

I observed this morning’s plenary session, the third plenary of this year’s COP. During the plenary, delegates heard presentations from the designated Climate Champions of Morocco and France.
