Polar bears can't walk to the climate talks in Poland, but we can send a representative on their behalf. Global action on climate change is urgently needed to ensure their future--and improve conditions for people too.

Climate Talks in Poland

The U.N. Climate Change Conference is taking place in Katowice, Poland, December 2nd–14th, 2018. More commonly called the U.N. climate talks, the conference brings leaders together from around the world to tackle the problem of climate change.

For the fifth consecutive year, we’re proud to send representative Christopher J. Carter to participate on behalf of Polar Bears International. You can meet him here:

“This year, we’re writing the rule book for the Paris Climate Agreement," Carter said. "The goal is to ensure a full implementation of the Paris Agreement by adopting rules and tools that will create solutions for the whole world. Since climate change is the single biggest threat to polar bears, it’s important to have a presence at the conference to speak up for polar bears and advocate with Arctic people.”

Tune in this week for updates from Christopher inside the halls of the conference. As opportunities arise, he’ll answer questions live on Facebook and Instagram. Send your questions in advance to:

We have our fingers (and paws) crossed for an outcome that is good for polar bears and people around the world.
