UniCa invites itself to the COP28...

Discover what our 5 representatives will be doing at COP28

As an observer organisation to the UNFCCC since 2021, Université Côte d’Azur is committed to support member states in the decision-making process, by providing scientific inputs and supporting overall transformation through training and innovation. Université Côte d’Azur wishes to be a proactive actor.

To that end, the University decided to commit to different actions ensuring the academic voice will be heard among the decision-makers. To this end, the University, relying on a delegation of 5 representatives, will be participating and contributing to the COP28 through several official UNFCCC events with the U7+ Alliance, RUS, Second Nature, only to name a few University Networks.

Moreover, Université Côte d’Azur will be associated to the Science for Climate Action Pavilion hosted by MERI Foundation, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and United Nations World Meteorological Organization, alongside the Centre Scientifique de Monaco. In this context, our representatives will participate to different panels covering topics such as: Health and Climate Change, Role of Higher Education and Research in the decision making process, Ocean and Climate Action, Transforming education to empower youth, etc.

... and the COP invites itself to UniCA !

Since the start of the academic year, the Université Côte d'Azur site has hosted different events to raise awareness on environmental challenges.

From October 13th to mid-January, this dynamic will be reinforced, mirroring COP28, through the organisation of events, round tables and workshops on all the campuses of the site.

Convinced that the role of Higher Education and Research institutions must be strengthened in their capacity to be solution providers through social, technological, and public policies innovations, Université Côte d’Azur decided to go beyond an institutional position statement. To do this, the University engaged with its community to publish an Academic Advocacy Collection to support an official position irrigated by research. Over 100 researchers and students contributed to over 30 advocacy pieces.
