COP27 debrief: The politics of power people and place



UBC Sustainability Hub, alongside other partner institutions, sent a special envoy to COP27 to bear witness and learn. 

Following opening remarks and a brief keynote, a special youth panel — fresh from COP27 — will cover climate topics such as power and governance, plurality and agency, geographical bias, and dig deep on reflective questions that get to the heart of what progress was made, what was lacking, and where to focus our energy next.

Take this opportunity to ask fellow students what attending COP27 was really like, what impacted them the most, and what they think should happen to make future COPs more effective.

Proudly presented in partnership by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, SFU Sustainability, and the UBC Sustainability Hub.
