Climate Change Adaptation Debate At Santee Education Complex

Last year, the Santee Education Complex in Los Angeles held a debate at about climate change.  On April 16, 2010, Santee students will participate in another debate under the auspices of the United Nations Foundation Global Debates program, this time focusing on the adaptations necessary to combat climate change.  The specific resolution under discussion is:  “Annex I Countries of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change should provide significantly increased aid to developing countries for the specific purpose of climate change adaptation.”  This, as readers may recall, was a tough issue at the recent Copenhagen conference on climate change.

The debate will be held on April 16, 2010 at 10:00 AM and 1:45 PM in the school auditorium.  The debates will be videotaped and submitted to the United Nations Foundation.  These students are good:  they have won this event two years in a row. 

The Santee Education Complex is at 1921 S. Maple Street in Los Angeles.  Stop by if you can.  You may also be interested in an Environmental Expo being held at Santee on April 28, 2010.
