For climate change, this is time of urgency, big ideas, and hope. 2015 will be a year of decisions – particularly at the 21st Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris.

The 15th National Conference and Global Forum on Science, Policy and the Environment: Energy and Climate Change will develop and advance partnerships that focus on transitioning the world to a new "low carbon" and "climate resilient" energy system. It will emphasize putting ideas into action - moving forward on policy and practice. 

We invite you to attend this major event. Join over 1,200 leaders in science and engineering, policy and governance, businesses and civil society, and education to expand and accelerate their efforts and work across the traditional boundaries. Inspiring speakers, informative sessions, amazing opportunities to network and form new relationships, start new projects, and advance solutions.

Themes: A New Energy "System", Energy, Climate, and Sustainable Development, Financing and Markets, Achieving Progress: "The Road to Paris."
