2023 Global University Climate Forum

Students can apply until 30 March 2023 to be part of this year's Global University Climate Forum and actively learn and contribute to the discourse around COP28

The Global University Climate Forum brings student activists together to share ideas, learn, connect, and act on the global imperative of addressing climate change.  Offered in the context of the global climate negotiations, this program challenges student teams around the world to propose ideas for local-scale projects that will yield measurable results over the course of six months.  Accepted teams become a cohort that learns together, networks, shares ideas, and contributes to a growing body of inspirational projects that demonstrate the capacity of today’s youth to lead and have an impact.

All proposals must be actionable by students without extensive contingencies and should be designed to yield measurable results over the course of six months. Proposals may reflect ongoing projects and activities so long as they are the intellectual capital of the students applying and there is a projected measurable outcome during the duration of the Forum implementation period. Students will be required to attend online workshops and encouraged to interact with each other over the six months of the Forum. Final projects will be collected into an online publication and showcased in an event after the 2023 climate COP in Abu Dhabi.
