JA Ghana is eagerly anticipating its participation in the upcoming global event, COP28, a gathering of industry leaders, innovators, and experts from around the world. Set to take place at Expo City in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), from November 30 to December 12, 2023, COP28 serves as a critical platform for assessing global progress on the Paris Agreement.
COP28, an annual summit under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), unites 197 countries and the European Union to discuss strategies for limiting emissions and addressing global warming. Recognized as one of the world’s highest decision-making bodies on climate issues, this year’s conference will play a pivotal role in shaping the global climate agenda.
Representing Ghana at this prestigious international summit, JA Ghana will send a delegation of high school entrepreneurs to participate in the Blue Zone, managed by the UNFCCC. The Blue Zone, accessible only to accredited parties such as country negotiators, observer delegates (including NGOs, IGOs, and UN agencies), media, and world leaders, will host formal negotiations, panel discussions, speaking engagements, and cultural festivities.
With generous sponsorship from the Tomorrow Foundation, JA Ghana aims to play a significant role at COP28 with planned presentations from its student entrepreneurs. The event promises a unique and exciting showcase featuring students from Tarkwa Senior High School, Presbyterian Boys Secondary Legon, and Legacy Girls College. These young entrepreneurs will present innovative solutions addressing climate change, particularly in the realms of health and agriculture.
Stakeholders, partners, and industry professionals are invited to stay tuned for updates and announcements leading up to COP28.
