Watch live: Local and global climate action on the Path to Paris

Join us for a discussion of local and global energy and climate action with Austin Blackmon, Boston's chief environment and energy official and other experts.

Diplomats from nearly 200 countries meet in Paris this December to forge a global climate agreement. Much progress has been made toward reducing the emissions responsible for climate change, but the path toward a low-carbon world is a difficult one.

How are leaders and thinkers across the globe – from Boston to Beijing – confronting the decarbonization challenge? Where do we stand less than three months from a climate summit that will define global energy for decades to come?

This event is jointly hosted by The Christian Science Monitor and World Resources Institute. It is free and open to the public. Doors open at 8:00 a.m. for networking.
