Who pays for climate breakdown? Is Biden set to clinch a climate deal? Will the voices of Indigenous leaders, youth activists and others be heard? And what are the potential impacts for B.C. and Canada?
Join UBC student and faculty delegates live from COP27 in conversation with climate journalist Lisa Johnson for an inside view of the negotiations, discussions and emotions of the conference.
