Representatives from 190 nations — 10,000 in all — participated in the United Nation’s 20th climate summit in Lima, Peru, in December. Three were from Wake Forest — Miles Silman, Professor of Biology and Director of CEES, John Knox, Professor of Law, CEES board member and UN Independent Expert on Human Rights and the Environment, and Justin Catanoso, CEES board member and Director of the WFU Journalism program. Each witnessed an aspect of the summit that for the first time saw all nation’s agree to limit their carbon emissions. Through presentations and video footage, the Wake Forest participants will offer a unique window into the most recent, and promising, international effort to curb global warming.
