COP and the University of Edinburgh
COP 28 – a global conference that tackles the climate crisis – is happening 30 November – 12 December 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
You can find the latest information about COP 28 on the Edinburgh Earth Initiative website.
In November 2022, the Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt hosted the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP 27), with a view to building on previous successes and paving the way for future ambition to effectively tackle the global challenge of climate change.
We sent 10 delegates to represent the University. The staff and students will participate in a number of events and panel discussions.
