H.E. Amb. Majid Al Suwaidi, Director General and Special Representative of COP28 UAE commented: “The Universities Climate Network will support our goal of creating a more inclusive and participatory environment for young people to be leaders in climate action. Continuing the positive legacy established at previous COPs, the Universities Climate Network will mobilize young people through meaningful dialogue and amplify the efforts of the COP28 Presidency including our Youth Climate Champion.
