The suspension of COP 25 in Chile: Climate Change and a Just transition 

On 30 October, after two weeks of mass demonstrations, the Chilean government cancelled the twenty-fifth Conference of the Parties (COP25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. COP 25 was scheduled for December in Santiago, Chile. 

The following day Henrik Grape, of the World Council of Churches (WCC ), released a blog regarding the suspension of COP 25. He states, "A narrative that could serve as a vehicle to meet the climate emergency we are facing must have a just transition as a core value."
