Lecture
Welcome to a climate conversation on Tuesday 15 March, between Anna Lindstedt, Swedish Ambassador and Chief Negotiator for climate change, and Kim Nicholas, associate professor at Lund University. What made the world ready for the agreement at the COP21 in Paris and what does it actually mean? And welcome also to tweet your questions to Anna before the event using the hashtag #climatelund on Twitter!

In December 2015 the countries of the world agreed on a new global and legally binding climate agreement after the final negotiations at the United Nations COP21 summit in Paris. Anna Lindstedt, the Swedish Ambassador and Chief Negotiator for climate change, played a key role within the Swedish delegation.

What made the world ready for the agreement in Paris? And what does it actually mean? What are the keys to success when working with climate diplomacy? With the Paris agreement the world has decided to move together. But how important is any one country to the long-term success? What is the individual’s role in influencing and in implementing the UNFCCC process? Join the discussion with Anna Lindstedt on the road to – and from – Paris.

Anna Lindstedt has been the Swedish Ambassador and Chief Negotiator for climate change since 2011. Before that, she was the Swedish Ambassador to Mexico.

Kimberly Nicholas is an associate professor of Sustainability Science at LUCSUS, Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies. She was one of 8 observers from Lund University at COP21.
