New Independent YouTube Statement from UN Climate Chief Yvo de Boer

The Barcelona Climate talks are where the last round of negotiations take place between parties before they gather in Copenhagen this December.

In this independent video, Yvo de Boer, the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC explains what he thinks is possible to achieve in Copenhagen – and what concerned citizens need to do to ensure it.

After Yvo de Boer briefed NGOs this week, he sat down with the ‘Negotiator Trackers’ from the Adopt a Negotiator project. They had a few minutes to try to lighten the mood and set up the camera, then he delivered a statement asking them to push out on social networks. So this is what we are doing. Here’s the link for a flip-cam version now posted on YouTube: (Only 56 views this far)

‘Adopt a negotiator’ has had trackers on the ground working hard to follow their lead negotiators and their country’s delegation throughout the process and throughout these talks. They have fantastic access to the negotiating teams and great insider info on what’s going on. Feel free to reach out to their teams and use them to get questions to the negotiators, insider interviews, guest posts when they’re able, etc… Here’s the list of where they’re tracking:
