University Climate Network - NYU Abu Dhabi
Representatives from 12 universities from the United Arab Emirates and higher education institutions have launched the University Climate Network, aimed at encouraging young people's participation in Cop28 at the end of this year.
The network, chaired by New York University Abu Dhabi, includes Khalifa University, Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, and the American University of Sharjah, among others and it aims to promote the principle of inclusion in the conference work system in a way that stimulates the participation of young people to prepare them to lead climate action and continue the positive legacy established at previous COPs.
The University Climate Network’s activities will begin with the “Ramadan Talks” series, which includes a number of seminars in which various educational institutions host prominent speakers in the field of climate and related topics, such as climate diplomacy, the hydrogen economy, modern urban life in Gulf countries, and the importance of Cop28.
Cop28 will be held from November 30 to December 12, at Expo City Dubai.
