OSIP in the Climate Studio

Written by Lauren on .

Yassir, Natasha, and I gave an interview at the Climate Change Studio Network at the UNFCCC. When we arrived, the president of the UN General Assembly, John Ashe, was being interviewed right before us! The experience of being interviewed live, while nerve-wracking and over in a flash, was really fun, especially doing it amongst inspiring friends and colleagues. Spending the entire morning (and part of the night before) preparing for the interview paid off, in that we had already planned out who would cover which topics so that we weren't fighting for the mic. Overall, it was a great experience, and we hope to do it again!
