Live from Dubai - Wisconsin Goes to COP28

Monday, December 4, 2023 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

On December 4, 2023, the Wisconsin Academy hosted an event featuring three Wisconsinites who attended COP28, the 28th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This event, in partnership with the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, was held on the day after the first-ever Health Day in COP history. Attendees asked the contingent questions about the health impacts of climate change, as well as other aspects of the discussions at COP28.


Thank you to the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies for partnering with the Wisconsin Academy on this event!
