It is now day 4 of COP21. It has been an eventful week, and the Dickinson delegation is soaking it all in! We are meeting with state delegates, participating in fossil fuel divestment actions, attending YOUNGO meetings (the youth delegation at the COP), and of course seeing some iconic Paris sites like the Eiffel Tower. Below are a few photos that capture the COP21 experience so far.
