COP28 is set to transform Dubai into a buzzing city this year! Taking place from 30 November to 12 December 2023, the COP28 summit will attract thousands of Rovers from around the world to discuss and learn about climate change and the world’s plan of action to combat its impact. While the COP conference is typically an event that’s reserved for government representatives and accredited delegates, at COP in Dubai, members of the public will be able to share in the action thanks to the addition of the Green Zone at Expo City Dubai, a space open to all Rovers! So if you’re passionate about the environment and climate action, COP28 2023 is where you want to be this year.
Rovers can look forward to experiencing this significant climate change event in full force, so make sure you’re one of them! Of course, it’s all good making your plans to attend the event, but you’ve got to secure your hotel near COP28.
