Quakers and the Climate COPs: A Report-Back and Follow-Up

December 20, 2023 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Climate COP (Conference of Parties) is an annual climate summit. This year, the COP will be held in Dubai from November 23 to December 12, 2023.

The COPs can be hard to make sense of or to approach, and yet they are the world’s most organized effort to bring governments and civil society together each year, to attempt to respond to climate change. In our names, major decisions are made–or not made–at these conferences that affect the future of our planet.

Our two COP events are co-sponsored by the Ben Lomond Quaker Center. On November 2, QEW hosted a pre-COP event where we explored the role of COPs in global climate policy, and the role of Friends in these events. After the conference concludes, the Ben Lomond Quaker Center is hosting another discussion and report-back on December 20, 2023 at 2pm Eastern/11am Pacific.
