Climate Conference

The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28), happening in Expo City, Dubai, and hosted by the United Arab Emirates, continues to unite global efforts to curtail carbon emissions. It convenes parties who have signed the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, offering a platform to assess advancements made towards tackling climate change.

University participation in climate events like COP28 deepens understanding of climate challenges and fosters a pragmatic global vision.

The Mohamed Bin Zayed University for Humanities, driven by the desire for meaningful participation in national and international dialogues on topics significant to its constituents and leaders, sees COP28 as an opportunity to enhance collaboration with researchers and experts from around the world.

This forum allows the exchange of ideas and knowledge while inspiring and encouraging the youth to develop environmental awareness and adopt sustainable practices to achieve environmental conservation.
