Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), visited the Harvard Kennedy School on September 27, 2013. The Harvard Project on Climate Agreements hosted Ms. Figueres, who met with Kennedy-School students, Harvard-College undergraduates, and faculty. She also held an open meeting attended by approximately 120 students from Boston-area universities. Her public address, entitled "The Good News on Climate Change," explored the potential of technological innovation to reduce the greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change.
