Panel Discussion The Earth after Copenhagen

Speakers: Michalis Modinos (environmentalist, geographer and engineer), Leonidas Louloudis (professor of Rural Environmental Policies, Vice Rector at the Agricultural University of Athens), Philippos Savvidis (political scientist, international relations expert), Dimitris Psychogios (journalist), Kimon Tsakiris (filmmaker)
Moderator: Elias Kannelis (journalist and publisher of The Athens Review of Books)

Between 7-18 December 2009, a world summit on climate change was held in Copenhagen. The goal of the Copenhagen Climate Conference was to bring the international community together in an effort to successfully counter the effects of global warming and climate change. However, the Climate Conference was unable to reach a new, global, legally binding agreement that could be readily enforced. What does this failure mean? What were the political and economic reasons that led to it? How much truth is there in the arguments put forward by climate change deniers? How urgent is the need for mutual global understanding in regard to climate change? What political requirements could guarantee it? What role can organized social groups, non-governmental organizations, artistic creation and the creative documentary play towards this goal?
