COP28’s mission in the Green Zone is to translate insights and ideas into meaningful impact.

Dedicated hubs across Expo City Dubai will give climate curious individuals opportunities to get inspired, learn, develop new skills, and collaborate to co-create and accelerate climate solutions. These spaces of discovery include:
