COP 28: United Nations Climate Change Conference
Thu, 30 Nov 2023 – Tue, 12 Dec 2023
COP refers to the United Nations' annual conference on climate change. Its 28th meeting (COP28) is scheduled to begin November 30, 2023, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The global event is an opportunity for us all to refocus on the climate agenda.
Leaders from around the world will be in attendance and will be discussing each nation's action and commitment to the climate emergency.
COP 28 is particularly important as it marks 7 years since The Paris Agreement, with only 7 years left to reach these critical targets by 2030.
The Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change. It was adopted by 196 Parties at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21).
We will be sharing more information on ways residents can get involved in the conference, from how to watch the event unfold live, to what the Council is doing during the 10 day event.
