In November 2023, the UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 28) will be hosted in Dubai.
We are proud that Dubai is home to one of our campuses - demonstrating our continued commitment to providing a world-leading, research-informed university education in the heart of the UAE.
To mark COP28, our campuses in Dubai and Birmingham will host a programme of events, discussions and projects - highlighting the tremendous research we are leading to help tackle the climate crisis.
This work will be led by the Birmingham Institute for Sustainability and Climate Action, and builds on our presence at COP26 in Glasgow. The University of Birmingham was part of this landmark event in a number of ways, and presence and input from students and colleagues was significant. We also hosted a panel discussion in November 2022 to mark COP27 as well as taking part in virtual and in-person events in Egypt.
More information about the COP28 programme coming soon.
