On the ground in Copenhagen just one day, members of the Commission to Engage African Americans on Climate Change are already busy. According to Lindsay Boroush, special assistant to the Joint Center’s Climate Change Initiative, members of the delegation have met with other concerned groups including representatives from U.S.-based Environmental Justice and Climate Change Initiative (EJCC), the Black Women’s Roundtable, Detroiter’s Working for Environmental Justice, and student representatives from Bennett College in North Carolina.

Several members of the delegation participated in a dialogue with Janet Lubchenco, administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and others attended a discussion with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu is scheduled to discuss energy efficiency and renewable energy later today.
