February 2018 WOM

Join us on February 20th for our special event on Climate Change

Join the CEO of the Carbon Markets Institute to hear all the news from COP23. Held at the end of 2017, the world’s nations met in Bonn for the UNFCCC's 23rd annual “Conference of the Parties” aimed at halting global warming. 

Our speaker, Peter Castellas, will share some key insights from the international negotiations held at COP23.  This was the first COP since the USA announced it's withdrawal from the Paris agreement and also  the first time a small island nation, Fiji, played the role of Presidency for the conference in another country. 

Location: University of Sydney Business School, Level 17, 133 Castlereagh St, Sydney
Date: 20 February 2017 
Time: 6pm for a 6:30pm start
