COP27 Forum

COP27 Forum

The 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly known as the Conference of the Parties of the UNFCC (COP) takes place between Sunday 6 and Friday 18 November 2022. Royal Holloway, University of London will be recognising COP27 in a number of ways.

This will demonstrate how the university’s community is contributing to meeting the challenges posed by climate change and ecological loss, decarbonisation and helping to generate creative engagements and solutions.

The COP27 Forum showcases Royal Holloway’s challenge-led research from the Living Sustainably research theme which addresses the challenges of climate change, biodiversity, food and energy security, infectious disease, inequalities in education, work and participation, political polarisation and resource consumption. Living Sustainably is one of four research themes which aims to build a strength in challenge-led research from the university’s well established research strengths as outlined in Royal Holloway’s three-year strategic plan.

As a College, we are a member of the UK Universities Climate Network and to celebrate COP27 a number of our researchers and academics will be writing a series of blogs that relate to the conference thematic days and also link to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

For further information about the 17 SDGs goals and how they connect to the interests and priorities of COP please read our previous blogs prepared in advance of COP26, last year.
