It’s been a record breaking year for us this year. We had the most diverse team ever, dominated by a group amazing young women from all around the world. We have pushed out the importance of Climate Change and #COP21 to audiences in Arabic, Bengali, French, Spanish, German, Greek and even in Catalan. We have been featured in CNN, Reuters, NBC, El Pais, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Fusion, OpenDemocracy, TriplePundit, The Ecologist, Good magazine, Univision, Diario el Tiempo, El Publico, Indian Express, Zett, Médiaterre and many more.
On top of all of this, today we have posted our 400th article here at COP21. We also published a series of videos and infographics that we hope have helped better explain everything that has happened at #Cop21 over the last 2 weeks. For a team of 16, that is quite a feat. We haven’t had a chance to analyse the impact of all of this, but I know it will be immense.
This project was created in 2009. Last year, we had an amazing team who created an unprecedented impact in Lima, highlighting the true impact of a group of “young people who write blogs” and “semi-stalk negotiators”. This year, we have built on that legacy.
While it is time to celebrate the negotiators and diplomats who made this deal possible, I would also love to celebrate the small impact this amazing team has had played it’s small role in pushing these negotiations forward.
