COP28@Home – Together for Climate Justice
“This Conference [COP28] can represent a change of direction, showing that everything done since 1992 was in fact serious and worth the effort, or else it will be a great disappointment and jeopardize whatever good has been achieved thus far.”
-Pope Francis on COP28 in Laudate Deum
COP28, the annual global climate summit, is scheduled to take place in Dubai from November 30 until December 12 this year. Leaders unite for two weeks of crucial climate discussions. This UN conference is pivotal, given the urgency the entire world is experiencing in what regards climate change. Pope Francis’s recent apostolic exhortation Laudate Deum underscores the significance of COP28 in shaping a sustainable future for all.
