We’re delighted to be running our ‘Live at the COP’ MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) once again.

The course will run during the United Nations COP28 Climate Change Conference which takes place in the United Arab Emirates between 30 November to 14 December. Developed in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh and the British Council, over 10,000 people from over 160 countries have taken part in this collaborative, facilitated learning opportunity since its first iteration in 2021 for COP26.

This two-week course offers you an opportunity to examine what COP28 is, why it’s considered to be important and reflect on how you can add your voice to the call for collective action for a sustainable future. This handy overview from our friends at EAUC provides an at-a-glance overview of some of the key events that will be taking place at COP28.

Throughout the course, we will share ‘live’ insights into the issues being discussed at COP28, as well as responses to the conference themes from children and young people, community groups and ministerial bodies, both nationally and internationally. Using these ‘starting points’, we will invite you to reflect on what you have heard, watched and read, and think about what these conversations and issues mean to you. 

Course content from Live at COP28 will remain open, free and accessible as a legacy resource for school, community and individual use beyond COP28.
