One month from now, and in the midst of a worsening and increasingly dangerous climate crisis, the United Nations Climate Change Conference will take place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. The 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) will last from November 6th to November 18th. The stakes are high, the negotiations face complex challenges and the need to overcome differences and work collaboratively is crucial. In this coming month, each one of us has the power to help build momentum and push for stronger political will and more ambitious climate action.
Just a few weeks ago, on November 20th, COP27 came to an end in Sharm el Sheik, Egypt. It was the 27th annual global summit of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Given the threatening and worsening state of our planet’s climate, this COP was extremely important and expectations were high. Reflecting on what happened at the COP, there were certain achievements that can be celebrated. However, the COP failed on one of its crucial priorities: Addressing the root cause of climate change: fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions.
