UC leaders provide insights at global climate summit
Nearly 200 countries will participate in the United Nations’ climate change conference, known as COP27 (short for the 27th Conference of the Parties), held this year from Nov. 6-18 in the resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
President Joe Biden and 90 other heads of state will attend along with leaders from industry, trade, transportation, finance, labor and more.
Dozens of students, staff and faculty from across the University of California are also participating at COP27 — in person and virtually — and sharing their expertise with a global audience on topics ranging from the vital role of the world’s oceans in addressing climate change to the link between decarbonization and improving health disparities. UC’s pioneering efforts to educate the next generation of climate leaders will also be on display.
