Thematic Event: COP27 – Let’s talk about solutions!

22 November, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Every year, thousands of representatives from business, government, academia and NGOs from all over the world meet to discuss climate change at COP (Conference of Parties). Previous COPs led to the Kyoto Protocol, which was signed in 1997, and the Paris Agreement of 2015. Both agreements had a significant influence on climate protection and are cited regularly in regulations, policies and carbon reduction goals from companies.

While we must not neglect the successes of the past COPs, there are also some frustrations. For example, critical voices say that COPs are usually over-represented by industries who have large carbon footprints, that there is a lack of attendees from the Global South and that the fact that any final measures must be agreed upon by consensus leads to very conservative compromises, in short: we need more action and less talk.

This year’s COP, which takes place from 6-18th November in Egypt, has four focus areas: Mitigation, Adaptation, Finance and Collaboration. We are hopeful that the discussions will lead to concrete actions.

Questions we will discuss include:

  • What was decided at COP27?
  • What changes will this bring to governments and businesses?
  • What are possible solutions and paths forward for climate change mitigation, adaptation and sustainable finance and collaboration?
  • What do we need from COP28?
