The U.S. Center is a major public outreach initiative of the United States hosted by the Department of State to inform audiences around the world about the U.S. actions on climate change, whether they are attending the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP-19) in Warsaw or viewing our programs through the web. This public diplomacy initiative, made possible by input and support from multiple U.S. Government agencies, academic institutions, nongovernmental organizations, private sector entities, and other stakeholders, will highlight key climate programs and scientific research, underscoring the strong actions the U.S. is taking at home and the robust strategy the U.S. is pursuing abroad to combat this global challenge.
Selected U.S. Center side events will be streamed online through the UStream interactive broadcasting platform. Online programming provides a virtual space for the interactive exchange of ideas, in which participants from anywhere in the world can congregate and discuss issues of concern. The UStream portal page at http://www.ustream.tv/USCENTER will serve as your one-stop destination for all information about live streamed and on-demand programming from the U.S. Center. Check the site daily for updates on upcoming events and recordings from previous sessions with leading climate change experts.
All U.S. Center events are followed by question and answer sessions. Ask the experts your questions from anywhere in the world using #AskUSCenter. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter with @US_Center and stay involved in the conversation!
