MS/ENVS student, Cande Bergero (G’19), attends the UNFCCC/COP 24 in Katowice, Poland

As a master’s student in environmental sciences, Cande Bergero (G’19) was ready for the experience in Katowice, Poland for the United Nations Conference of Parties (COP). She thoughtfully reflects on her experience through her personal blog, capturing what the work at the COP meant to her academically and personally. She also published a video of her interviews with activists involved in renewable energy initiatives. She discussed renewable goals with Bärbel Hön, a member of the German Green Party who was involved in the German transition to renewables, and Duncan Gibb, who produces the Renewables Global Status Report for REN21, an organization that has been tracking targets and regulatory policies since 2005.
