Conference of the Parties (COP)
United Nations Climate Change Conference
Join Our Delegation!
Care About Climate sends an international delegation to the UNFCC Conference of the Party each year. The delegation engages in local advocacy, interacts with country negotiators, attend policy meetings, and influences policy and decision-making at this major annual event. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about international climate policy and to work together to impact our global leaders.
Our delegation is chosen each year from a global pool of applicants. In 2018, our delegation chose to focus on Climate Justice, the Global Stocktake (GST), and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), though these topics vary from year to year.
What is the Conference of the parties?
The UNFCCC Conference of the Parties is an annual UN session that works to create progressive climate orientated policies and programs. Leaders and negotiators from nearly every country in the world come together to create united action. This conference changes locations each year and has a special focus on the country who leads the conference. This past year, COP24 was hosted in Katowice, Poland.
