Join the United Nations Institute for Training and Research at the upcoming COP28!

COP28 is now just two weeks away and we’re very pleased to announce that our flagship initiative “The Climate Classroom” will be returning for an 11th time, complete with a brand-new look!

The Climate Classroom offers a free and short interactive learning experience that is designed to help those attending or following climate meetings get quickly up-to-speed on important climate topics. Each class is 45 minutes long and delivered by a team of experts following a 3-step lesson plan that allows you to engage and interact with the content.

Following the success of previous editions, The Climate Classroom @ COP28 will be fully online meaning that you can follow our classes if you’re attending COP in Dubai or following the event from home.

Those who attend a Climate Classroom will receive our new virtual UN CC:Learn badge and enjoy first access to alumni engagement events next year. Check the programme below and register for the Climate Classrooms that you’d like to attend by clicking on the class titles.

*All times Central European Time (CET) (UTC+1). COP28 will take place in Dubai, UAE which is three hours ahead (Gulf Standard Time, GST) (UTC+4).
