UUCN at COP28
Representatives from across our member institutions will be attending the United Nations climate change conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 30 November to 12 December 2023
Meet our early career researcher delegation!
The UUCN is proud to be partnering with the Centre for Postdoctoral Research in Infrastructure, Cities and Energy (C-DICE) and the UK Science and Innovation Network in UAE to deliver a scholarship programme for early career researchers to attend COP28.
We’ve awarded ten scholarships to early career researchers from across the UK with diverse research backgrounds. They will be attending COP28 to gain an understanding of the process collaborate with climate change experts from around the world.
We are honoured to be supporting the ActNowFilm – a film project which brings together passionate youth climate leaders and world leading climate experts from six continents in thought-provoking conversations about the most pressing issue of our time.
Developed by the University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR) and Cambridge Zero, this film is a testament to the immense skills, knowledge, and expertise that youth climate leaders and climate experts contribute to the fight against climate change. It serves as a clarion call for the integration of young people into national climate negotiating teams and global climate decision-making processes.
ActNowFilm: youth climate leaders in conversation with climate experts premiered in the Green Zone at COP28 on 8 December.
Our member institutions will be holding events every day of the conference, including events in the Blue and Green Zones, as well as virtual events. These events will highlight the latest research and evidence for climate action.
