Colorado State University shared its climate research and helped university students worldwide share their ideas about climate change at the 2022 United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change Conference of the Parties, or COP27.

CSU was selected to host a unique art exhibit and side events at the U.S. Center Pavilion in the negotiation zone of COP27, held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, in November. The CSU team also hosted a booth and several panel discussions in the main area during the 12-day summit.

The School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES) manages CSU’s participation as an official observer organization in the UNFCCC as part of its charge to facilitate cross-campus sustainability research and education. The CSU delegation included six faculty and staff and 12 students from four colleges.

CSU’s display —one of four exhibits in the U.S. Center Pavilion and the only university exhibit — focused on educating students and research on climate change and climate action.
