Climate, Conflict & the Search for Peace: First-Hand Observations from COP27, Russia and Eastern Europe
Speaker: Tamara Lorincz, PhD candidate
Tamara will share her insights as an observer delegate at the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) climate summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt this November. She was on the delegation of the Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom (WILPF), which is a member of the Climate Action Network International and the Women Gender Constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
After Egypt, Tamara went on a tour of Russia, Finland, Latvia, Poland, and Romania to learn more about these countries and to talk with people about their perspectives on the war in Ukraine and NATO expansion. She was invited to speak at Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) and at a public event in Helsinki. Her tour was motivated by citizen diplomacy, peace-building, and strategic empathy.
