Next year, Poland will host the United Nations climate summit, according to Gazeta Wyborcza. The official decision will be made on December 7 but no other country submitted an offer to host the talks, which makes Poland’s selection rather certain.
Some 20,000 guests from all over the world are expected to arrive to Warsaw to take part in the summit and other accompanying events. The main talks will be held at the National Stadium and in the Palace of Culture and Science.
“Poland is a good place to go. What this conference does is bring the world's attention to the host country and encourage that country to actually step up to the plate and do more,” the head of the UN Climate Change Secretariat, Christiana Figueres, told Reuters.
