The mock negotiation aims to gather 25 teams (75 students) from all over the world to engage in an enriching negotiation of climate-related subjects while fostering critical thinking and interpersonal skills. The competitors will develop a joint document that will become a “Call to Action from the Sorbonne Abu Dhabi to future generations” to be presented at COP28 by the two best teams.

The Organization Committee will present all information concerning the Youth COP participation during the webinar.
