A panel of experts who attended the Paris Climate talks will discuss how events unfolded, the decisions made (or not made) and their implications for Australia and the world:

  • What are the prospects for keeping warming to 2°C?
  • Where are we headed now in terms of climate change?
  • How did hopes of a legally-binding agreement match the reality of what happened?
  • What needs to happen next to maintain (or regain) the momentum?
  • What options are open for Australia and Australians?
