Leeds at COP27

 

In November 2022, Egypt will be hosting the next United Nations climate change conference, known as COP27.

Since 1995, world governments have met every year to negotiate a response to global climate change. These 197 nations and territories, signatories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, are represented at the Conference of the Parties (COP), responsible for reviewing the implementation of the Convention. This year is the 27th meeting of the COP, hence COP27.

COP27 and the University of Leeds

Research and innovation from the University of Leeds will contribute to important discussions and negotiations that take place in the run up to, and at, COP27. As an official observer of the UNFCCC - the framework that underpins COP27 - the University will send a delegation to the conference in Sharm El Sheikh. Members of this delegation will be involved in events and activities across both the Blue Zone (UN-managed space which hosts the negotiations) and Green Zone (managed by the Egyptian Government, and open to the general public).

The University is involved in several events at COP27.
