The BBC has produced a short introduction on what you need to know about COP 25, the 25th Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) meeting in Madrid, December 2 - December 13, 2019.. You will recall that this was changed from Chile because of political unrest.

The task of COP 25 is to make sure that the Convention in making sure that  the 2015 Paris Agreement, which strengthens the Convention), are being implemented.

The BBC video is 3m20s long.

The New Scientist magazine has a very good summary on details such as who is attending, the aims, expectations, and key players. Much is at stake. 
Swedish youth activist, Greta Thunberg will be a late arrival, perhaps only by a day, to the Madrid meeting. She was in Los Angeles when she asked for help getting there by sea. An Australian couple and their son traveling the world by catamaran offered a berth.

And Ms. Thunberg has arrived after 20 days at sea.. Here is a video (6 m 46 s) about the trip and the arrival.
