COP21 Opening Plenary, Bridget Burns, December 2015

PARIS, France (Dec. 1, 2015)  – On Tuesday, Bridget Burns from Women’s Environmental & Development Organization, USA, held an intervention on behalf of the Constituency in the Joint COP/CMP Opening Plenary. Refering to the ‘act of defiance’ called for by some Heads of State on the previous day, she argued that “a true act of defiance would let us leave this COP committing to a genuinely transformative and binding agreement which challenges dirty economies, political and military systems, and fund renewable and just futures for all.“
