The UN climate summits, the COP (Conference of the Parties) are global events, in the course of which action for climate policy is negotiated. This year Katowice, Poland hosts the event, Climate #COP24.
Ministers arrive on Monday. Will they reference / take note of the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ºC?
- Will the conference and side events have livestreaming and archived video?
- Will press conferences be streamed online?
- Are there guidelines or tips for remote viewers?
- Will participants use wikis or google docs for collaborative notes?
- How is #COP24 different from #COP23?
- What would locals like visitors to know about Poland?
- What is on the agenda for the next climate COP?
- What is a COP and is there a way to make COPs more meaningful to the public? (also see environmental journalism)
Most of the planet will not be attending this meeting in person, so we would like to use the web – and the social web – to get inside the doors, educate ourselves, find answers to our questions and perhaps collaborate.
Critical events need to do the best job possible when it comes to being public-facing. Yes, we want to have access to livestreaming video – the official proceedings and the in-the-corridors chats that could be streamed via Periscope and FacebookLive.
