Not all glamour at the climate talks
Emily Gertz is a freelance journalist, editor, and blogger covering the environment, technology, science, and sustainability. She reported on the Copenhagen climate talks on behalf of Oxfam America.
Here are some views of daily life inside the Bella Center, the venue for the climate change treaty negotiations. (Click the word “captions” to see more information about each image.)
Many of the non-governmental organizations such as Oxfam, which are attending the climate talks, don’t have formal workspaces at the Bella Center.
So, many of them take over tables, couches, and other convenient spots — the same places, day after day. Well into the evening, you’ll find them working away in these unofficial offices.
Members of the press, I’m happy to say, are off-display in the Press Centre.
