This fall there are two global gatherings of scientific and political leaders—COP 15 and COP 26—that will be consequential for the future of life on earth. Between these two events, and in partnership with the Embassies of France and Germany in Canada, the RSC is hosting a virtual Town Hall to convene experts from Canada, France and Germany with a view to sharing insights about the outcomes of COP 15 and the opportunities of COP 26, with a focus on the impacts of climate change on biodiversity in the oceans.
