Microsoft is providing a delegation of issue and technology experts accredited to support the UN's Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (COP15). We are participating in a series of briefings, events, and partnerships to showcase for policymakers and other COP15 attendees the power of information technology (IT) to help address the daunting global energy and climate challenges the world faces. In addition to listening in on the discussions and engaging governments on what we need to do to help find solutions, we will be supporting the European Environment Agency (EEA) with technology recently developed to help boost citizen awareness and involvement on this important issue.
