About the Event
As a UN registered Research & Independent Non-Governmental Organization (RINGO), UW sent three official delegates to the UN Climate Change Conference, known as COP 26. These delegates were UW’s three “observers” participating in the meetings, appointed by the Office of Global Affairs.
EarthLab and the Office of Global Affairs have invited the three UW delegates to communicate with the broader UW community their reflections on the global conference and what we – as a university and as individuals – might do to follow up.
This past fall, over 300 attendees and speakers convened virtually for Nature & Health’s first ever three-day conference. Designed to span a variety of topics and times from October 12-14, UW’s Nature & Health team welcomed transdisciplinary experts from across the globe to share their findings on the importance of nature in human health and well-being.Read more
