For the first time, Finland is organizing her own pavilion at the UN Climate Change Conference. COP28 will be held 30.11.-12.12.2023 at Expo City Dubai. COP meetings have evolved to be the largest climate event of the year! This year, the first Global Stock Take (GST) after the Paris Agreement will be dominating the scene.

COP28 is expecting some 60-80.000 accredited visitors to the UNFCC managed site, where Finland Pavilion will be located. The surrounding Green Zone will attract some 30-50.000 visitors daily during the two weeks program.

COP28 Presidency has published the Thematic Program. Changes on topics or even dates of the Thematic Program are possible, although quite unlikely.

Find out more about the venue and program in the attached presentation.
