Posted: October 28, 2009


The University of Michigan has been granted "Observer Organization" status for the United Nations Climate Change Conference  in Copenhagen December 7-18, 2009. As part of this official designation, a select group of U-M faculty, alumni, and students will be admitted to observe the sessions of the COP15 Convention and the Kyoto Protocol. (Sessions are not open to the public.)

"This is one of the most important meetings in climate change and climate-change policy," says AOSS Prof. Richard B. Rood, who will be leading the U-M delegation to the global event, "and this is the first time the University of Michigan has had observer status."
