for a globally engaged Iowa

A division of the United Nations Association

Iowa, the United Nations, and Climate Change

IUNA Climate logoNext December the United Nations will convene a conference in Paris to complete a new treaty to curb the emission of greenhouse gases.  While the prospects for the conference are uncertain, there is a good chance that it will, at least, encourage countries around the world to set their own targets for reducing green-house gas emissions. The project, “Iowa, the United Nations, and Climate Change,” will feature a series of community forums across the state where citizens will have the opportunity to learn about the issues, the work of the UN in addressing climate disruption and its effects, the prospects for the Paris talks, and opportunities for citizens to be active on the issue to provide the public awareness and concern that will encourage national leaders to participate constructively in the Paris conference and other global efforts.


The Iowa United Nations Association is a non-profit organization seeking to engage Iowans globally through educational programming for youth and adults, humanitarian relief drives, and unique celebrations of our global interconnectedness.  Iowa UNA is a grassroots member-driven organization and could not succeed without the support of members like you!
