Four graduate students from UCSD will join Scripps oceanography researchers next week at a climate-change summit hosted by the United Nations.
The purpose of sending international-relations students -- a first for the school -- is to enhance the dialogue about global warming and its effects, said Erica Jue, one of the students attending the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties, in Cancun.
Delegates from the around the world are expected at the summit, set for Nov. 29 to Dec. 10.
"Sending this delegation to (the conference) allows our students to accelerate their march toward leadership by learning through doing”, said Peter Cowhey, dean of the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies at the University of California San Diego.
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, part of UCSD in La Jolla, also will send three people to the conference, including director Tony Haymet. They will join global leaders and discuss ways to address climate change. In a recent issue of the journal Science, a group of Scripps oceanographers called on other scientists to be more vocal about their research as a means to improve climate-change policy.
The graduate students who will accompany the researchers have launched a social-media campaign COPDialogue to encourage UCSD students and students worldwide to join the climate-change conversation.
Before and during the conference, people can send questions to this Twitter account here or Wordpress blog, and they'll be posed to researchers and diplomats at the conference. On Twitter, attach the hashtag #COPDialogue in your tweets about the conference.
The student delegation includes students Lila Petersen, Erica Jue, Tyler Petersen and Jarrod
