Dubai Debrief: A Report from the UN’s Climate Conference




Please join us for a virtual lunchtime panel discussion with attendees of the recent UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP28).

Every year, the United Nations convenes scientists, policymakers, advocates, and delegations from 198 countries to chart a path to a safe climate future. Point Blue representatives and partners were among the 85,000 participants that convened in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP28) from November 30 – December 13, 2023 to rally the world to step up efforts to address the climate crisis. The panel will provide a range of perspectives and insights into the outcomes of the conference and how Point Blue’s observer status helps the organization achieve our mission.
