Recent Events:
CAH was represented at the CoP23 Climate Talks in Bonn this November.
As a member of CANA (Climate Action Network Australia), with observer status at the  UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, 
Climate Action Hobart was very fortunate to have sustainability practitioner & musician Emily Johnston attending on our behalf.  
Emily is currently living in Bonn, and running the brand new sustainability & social innovation site: www.unityeffect.net

Emily's been accredited for the Bonn Zone, located in Rheinaue Park, which will accommodate events showcasing climate action, 
including high-level events, side events and exhibits organized by both UNFCCC and the Government of Germany.  
It will also include some media activities as well as events in the delegation pavilions.

The conference this year was hosted by Fiji, but Bonn, being the UNFCCC headquarters, was the location for logistical purposes
The talks ran from 6-17 November.
