Paris Climate Change Summit 2015

Topic 1: Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs)

Topic 2:  Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

For far too long, nations have been reluctant to discuss the most potentially destructive of man made crises: climate change.  With average temperatures rising at an alarming rate, the overall health of the planet must be discussed on a large scale basis.  For the first time, very overdue, all 196 nations will come together and discuss rising global temperatures and how to combat issues such as carbon emission restrictions and overall global pollution levels.  No matter how productive this session may be, there is one question on the back of everyone’s mind: is this too late?

Tova Levin - Chair

I am a junior studying International Relations and Environmental Analysis and Policy, and I hope to work in global sustainable development policy. At Boston University, I work at the Center for the Study of Asia in the School of Global Policy and am involved in a number of student activities on campus, including the Earth and Environment Review, International Business Club, Taekwondo, Global Environmental Brigades, and the International Affairs Association. In high school, I was head delegate for the MUN program; through BU MUN conferences, I have served on the secretariat, as chair of the UNDP committee, and as an assistant crisis director. I am very excited to negotiate the Paris Climate Change Summit at BosMUN XVI!
