COP 28 starts this week. The Institute for Climate and Society (iCS), its grantees and partners will participate and follow the debates during the two weeks of the Conference. We have prepared a list of highlights to follow our grantees, our events and some key events to better understand the Brazilian climate agenda.

This year there will no longer be the physical space of the Brazil Climate Action Hub, which was created in 2019 by iCS and civil society organizations in order to provide more visibility to the Brazilian climate actions. For COP28, the Brazil pavilion, led by the federal government, has the curatorial support of the Brazil Climate Action Hub in order to guarantee the broad participation of Brazilian civil society in the space.

iCS, F-20 and the Climate Emergency Collaboration Group (CECG) will also organize the event “The Brazilian Presidency of G20 – What is the Role of Philanthropy” on December 6, from 09:30 to 11:30. If you are a member of a philanthropic organization and wish to participate in this event, please contact Camila Moura by email: camila.moura@climaesociedade.org.

Take a look at our program. However, please note: The events are on Dubai time, which is +7hours ahead of Brazil. In the next few days, we will announce the program for the second week of COP28.

Enjoy!
