Road to Santiago: COP25

What is COP25?

Every year for 25 years, the nations of the world have gathered in the UN-convened “Conference of the Parties” to discuss solutions to the climate crisis. A peak in this process was achieved at COP21, which was held in Paris and saw the creation of the Paris climate agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

This year, the 25th Conference of the Parties will be held in Santiago, Chile 2-13 December, with a gathering in Costa Rica 8-10 October.
