COP28 Connect - Bridging the gap between policy and action for a sustainable future

Are you passionate about the global climate crisis, but don’t know how to get involved? If so, at least you’re not alone: out of all Leaders 2050 members surveyed global 72% see the transition to net zero as an opportunity for our generation, but over half do not know how to get involved.

COP28: The Who, What, Where

The United Nations Climate Change Conferences have been held annually since 1995, but have been heavily focused in recent years on meeting global targets set by the Paris Agreement and discussing pathways to achieve a net zero emissions future. This year’s 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) will be held in Dubai from 30 November - 12 December 2023. Although the format will be similar to previous years, the stakes are now even higher. Expanding the thematic scope, this year’s 2-week program will be centred around four cross-cutting themes of Technology & Innovation, Inclusion, Frontline Communities and Finance.
