Island Voices @ COP28

Sharing Climate Change Messages from Islanders to the World

30th November – 12th December 2023

Island Representation at COP28

Island Innovation will host the “Island Voices @COP28” virtual space to share key insights and developments related to island communities.

Our team is committed to ensure the representation of island communities and coverage of key relevant announcements. Our aim is to give a platform to islanders to gain the latest news and have a space discussing the threats that they are facing, as well as solutions from local business leaders, politicians and academics and provide a connection from COP28 to islanders across the world who cannot attend in person.

The platform is designed for those attending COP28 and those following from afar, and will connect both Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Sub-National Island Jurisdictions (SNIJs).

Island Voices @ COP28?
