Meg Caldwell is mentioned in this article for her participation in the 15th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen:

Some 15,000 participants from 193 nations are expected to attend COP15, the 15th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), taking place in Copenhagen through Dec. 18. The conference is an attempt to reach a global agreement on how to combat climate change. Among the mass of attendees will be a Stanford delegation, roughly 65 strong, consisting of faculty, staff and some 50 students. Many of the students will be volunteering as interns for a broad range of academic and special interest groups.

Stanford faculty will be involved in two press conferences and several other special events at the meeting, some of which may be available to view live on the COP15 website.


In the evening of Dec. 14, the center will co-sponsor a reception for government officials. Meg Caldwell, executive director of the Center for Ocean Solutions and a senior lecturer at Stanford Law School, will introduce a video segment in which researchers from Stanford and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute explain the importance of the ocean to climate and overall human survival.

Caldwell is also affiliated with Stanford’s Woods Institute for the Environment, as are Dunbar, Schneider and many of the other Stanford attendees.

The Center for Ocean Solutions is a collaboration of Stanford, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.
