Special Edition — International Climate Progress: A Conversation with Connie Hedegaard
Connie Hedegaard, the former EU Commissioner for Climate Action, played a key role in international climate talks. She joined EPIC’s Senior Fellow and former White House National Security Director for International Climate Policy Pete Ogden for a conversation on the road to Paris, from Paris and much more as part of an EPIC event and live recording of Off The Charts.
Connie Hedegaard played a pivotal role in the Copenhagen climate conference in 2009 and has remained an important figure since. As part of a live EPIC event, Hedegaard talked with EPIC’s Senior Fellow and former White House National Security Director for International Climate Policy Pete Ogden. In their conversation, the two dove into the ways Copenhagen paved the way to Paris and taught important lessons that ultimately aided Paris’s success; how the Paris agreement is different from what leaders were trying to accomplish in Copenhagen; and what needs to happen to ensure success from Paris is realized.
