Discover what our 11 representatives did at COP27

As an observer organisation to the UNFCCC since 2021, Université Côte d’Azur is committed to support member states in the decision-making process, by providing scientific inputs and supporting overall transformation through training and innovation. Université Côte d’Azur wishes to be a proactive actor.

To that end, the University decided to commit to different actions ensuring the academic voice will be heard among the decision-makers. To this end, the University, relying on a delegation of 11 representatives, will be participating and contributing to the COP27 through: the Ocean Pavilion, an official UNFCCC side event with the U7+ Alliance; only to name a few.

Moreover, Université Côte d’Azur was associated to the Science for Climate Action Pavilion hosted by MERI Foundation, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and United Nations World Meteorological Organization, alongside the Centre Scientifique de Monaco. In this context, our representatives will participate to different panels covering topics such as: Paradigm shift and Climate Change, Blue and Green Economy, Ocean and Seas, Land and Nature Based Solutions, etc.

Discover what our scientific community and students have to say!

Convinced that the role of Higher Education and Research institutions must be strengthened in their capacity to be solution providers through social, technological, and public policies innovations, Université Côte d’Azur decided to go beyond an institutional position statement. To do this, the University engaged with its community to publish an Academic Advocacy Collection to support an official position irrigated by research. Over 100 researchers and students contributed to over 30 advocacy pieces.
