Progress or Status Quo on Climate Change? Takeaways from COP26

November 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EST

Over the past two weeks, representatives from nearly 200 countries convened in Glasgow for COP26 to discuss new plans to tackle climate change. The conference was regarded as the best – and last – chance to save the earth from the catastrophic consequences of global warming. However, many attendees, analysts, and observers believe it fell short. Although the countries agreed there is a problem, few actionable solutions were hammered out.

Join us on November 18 at 9:00 am ET for a discussion with Bundestag Member Lisa Badum (The Greens), who attended COP26 as part of the German delegation. She will reflect on the climate deal which was reached and what it means for the future of climate change policy. This event is supported by the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung.

Lisa Badum has been a Member of the German Bundestag since the autumn of 2017 for the constituency of Bamberg and for the whole of Upper Franconia. She is the spokeswoman for climate policy in the green parliamentary group. She is a member of the Environment Committee and Deputy Member of the Committee on Economic and Energy Affairs. From 2012 to 2017, she worked in the civil energy department at NATURSTROM AG. She served as a research assistant and advisor to Bundestag Member Uwe Kekeritz (Alliance 90 / The Greens) from 2010-2013. She has a background in political science and received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Bamberg.
