The Rove x Extreme Hangout space is an open-to-all activation at the Green Zone, which is the area of the COP conference that’s open to all members of the public. We’ll be hosting a range of exciting activities, including live music and entertainment, panel discussions including global opinion leaders, sporting events, and more.
