COP 24 – Over 100 events for a green future


COP24,  the two-week 24th conference of the parties of the United Nations Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC), started on Sunday in Katowice, Poland, with a special focus on carbon neutrality and gender equality. The world is gathering to define how the 2015 Paris Agreement will be implemented and moved forward. 

Under the agreement, all countries have committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit the global average rise in temperature to well below 2°C, and as close as possible to 1.5°C.

This 24th COP will be hosting over 28,000 people and well over 100 events will highlight action in transport, water, land-use, energy, the fashion industry, to name a few, representing the wide spectrum of climate action. 

One of this guests is Alexander Simader, Alumnus of the MSc Renewable Energy in Central and Eastern Europe. He will be part of the interactive expert discussion on Fostering Resilience in Urban and Rural Settings - Perspectives on Health, Communication and Implementation, organized by the CCCA (Climate Change Center Austria).
