Climate Champions from the HSBC Climate Partnership have joined Earthwatch at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancún, Mexico.
The five Climate Champions have been talking to visitors at the conference, which runs from 29 November to 10 December 2010, about the work of the HSBC Climate Partnership, their role as ‘citizen scientists’ and the sustainability projects they have led since returning from the field.
The two-week UN summit sees delegates continuing to work towards an international climate deal, and encompasses the sixteenth Conference of the Parties (COP) and the sixth Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP).
