In December, for two weeks, Katowice will become the center of global negotiations and activities for climate protection.
The United Nations Climate Change Conference is a global conference, during which action for climate policy is negotiated. Poland was a host country - in 2008, in Poznań and in 2013, in Warsaw. In December 2018, the conference will take place in Katowice.
This year's conference will include the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24), the 14th Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 14) and the Conference of Signatories to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1.3). Over 30 thousand people from 196 countries will take part in the event, including politicians, representatives of non-governmental organizations, academia and a business sector.
As a host city of the COP24, Katowice is open to cooperation at this historic event. It will be an excellent opportunity to take part in scientific and cultural events: meetings, seminars, workshops or competitions.
