Four seniors from the School of Environmental Studies, will travel to Doha, Qatar November 23rd - December 9th to participate as official observers of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference. The delegation from SES will be attending as representatives of the School of Environmental Studies Education Foundation (SESEF) and will be the third SES student delegation to attend the annual conference since the Foundation was accredited as an official UNFCCC observer organization in 2009.  The students were selected to fill the delegation quota given to the Foundation by the UNFCCC based on a competitive selection process including a written application and oral interviews with SES faculty, administration, and SESEF Board members. The SES students will be hosted by the American School of Doha (ASD) and will form a joint delegation with selected faculty and students from ASD to observe official negotiation sessions, attend informational conference sessions on a wide range of climate change related topics, and report back to SES and the broader community via daily blog posts.
