Climate fellows Camilla Andersen and Melody Schreiber wrote a listicle over at Medium about the must-watch people making waves on the ground at the COP21 climate talks in Paris. 

 

More than 45,000 people are attending the conference — from top government leaders to NGOs to environmental researchers. Though this is the 21st meeting of its kind, this year the model of the conference is new.

 

Rather than the UN leadership telling countries what they should do, it has asked countries to submit plans called Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs).

 

In other words, the leadership is asking countries what they want to achieve for the climate.

 

So what do attendees at COP21 want to achieve?
