COP28, Dubai


A new sense of hope as COP28 wraps up

The COP28 conference in Dubai came to a close today with the world holding an historic new deal in its hands to ‘transition away from fossil fuels”.

With each COP that passes more and more of the world has come into sight; inclusivity and passion are complementing the diplomatic dance taking place inside the negotiating rooms and it’s a dynamic that has given us ‘The UAE Consensus’ the 11th hour deal that green lights an ambitious climate agenda designed to keep 1.5°C within reach and point the world towards its North Star of phasing out fossil fuels,.

But before we sign off on our coverage from Dubai, where we’ve been asking decision makers, innovators, and creatives for their optimistic perspectives on the future, as well as their insights into what a world that works for everyone looks like for them, we have some final thoughts on these posers, shared by nine amazing friends, old and new:
