Our mission at COP27
As we look back on the hottest summer on record for the Northern Hemisphere, and as the Southern Hemisphere enters their heat season, the 2022 U.N. Conference of the Parties (COP27) in Egypt is a critical opportunity to catalyze bold and collective action to build the resilience of vulnerable communities to the growing health, economic, and equity impacts of climate-driven extreme heat.
Our mission at COP27 there is to accelerate knowledge sharing, deliver and discover new tools, and bring innovative finance & policy solutions to life to tackle extreme heat. We look forward to engaging, exchanging, and sharing insights on:
- mobilizing capital to deliver cooling and heat resilience across the globe
- gaming and virtual reality technologies that equip players to survive climate and thrive in the real world
- a timely and tangible take on financing adaptation with insurance
- a power-packed advocacy strategy that mobilizes mayors to deliver heat policy action at scale
