In December 2009, I travelled to Copenhagen for the UN Climate Conference COP 15. As part of the OU/BBC Creative Climate project I conducted a number of interviews with individuals taking part in the negotiations or in Copenhagen for other reasons. Below are links to these interviews.
Cloud Factories- Marisol Becerra
I met Marisol at the DanHostel where she was staying. It was great to meet someone from Chicago and I was deeply impressed by Marisol’s accomplishments and ambitions. She is a student at DePaul University and was in Copenhagen as part of her course and to represent her community in Chicago, Little Village.

Visualising Climate Change- Ed Morris, Canary Project
Ed and I met at the Culture Futures conference at the beginning of my two weeks in Copenhagen. Ed was in Copenhagen in part to write a series of articles for the online magazine GOOD on cultural responses to climate change in Copenhagen. He kindly let me accompany him on the Thursday when he visited the RETHINK series of exhibitions across three galleries in Copenhagen. We conducted the interview at the Nikolaj Copenhagen Contemporary Art Centre at the end of our day in the museums.

Stemming the cash flow- Matti Kohonen
I knew Matti from the LSE and was surprised to run into him at the Klima Forum in Copenhagen. In our interview he talks about his work with the Tax Justice Network and how it’s relevant to climate change.
