The COP28 venue in Dubai has experienced network issues, which have on occasion caused the streaming of the Just Transition Pavilion events to cut. If this happens while you are watching, we apologise for the inconvenience, and we will add the full recording of the event as soon as possible after it closes, so it can be watched on demand. 

The 28th session of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) will take place from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. COP28 marks a critical moment of intensifying a triple planetary crisis, which is interlinked and cascading effects of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. At this pivotal juncture, there is an ever-growing urgency for ambitious action and global cooperation in a tense international political context.

Keeping the social dimension of climate change at the forefront of discussions is the focus of events being organized in the Just Transition Pavilion at the up-coming UN Climate Change Conference (COP28). For the second year in a row, the ILO and the European Commission are hosting the Just Transition Pavilion, a convening space for events, meetings and knowledge sharing around just transition and climate action in cooperation with the UNFCCC, International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and International Organisation of Employers (IOE).
