UNFCCC Negotiators Twitter Handles

July 17, 2014

Youths from all around the world face uphill struggles trying to keep track of the overwhelming process that is the Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and its various meetings throughout the years. But with technological advancement and subscription to social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, this has no doubt helped to make their lives that little bit easier. Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Ms. Christiana Figueres, is an avid Facebook and Twitter user, much to the excitement of well, excitable youths and delegates to the conferences and meetings.

Some amazing people behind youth initiatives and activism around climate change action have pulled together a list of Twitter handles by key negotiators who participate or who have participated in UNFCCC negotiations. Here they are:
