An HBCU Pre-COP17 Climate Change Training was convened on November 19, 2011 at Dillard University. The six (6) student delegates were given an overview of climate change, environmental justice, and briefed on the history of the COP17 process. Student delegates gave pre and post conference reflections of the COP17 trip to share their learning experience.
Since the COP17 Conference, the students have participated in conference calls and have developed a strategic plan to host an HBCU Climate Change Conference in the fall of 2012. The students have also started a student climate change blog to engage students across the globe with similar climate justice issues.
