Highlights from COP 28 (Mon 4 Dec)

On Monday 4th Dec, artist Julieta Romero commenced a mural on the wall of our pavilion expressing a hope for diverse energy collaboration – this work will continue tomorrow. Come and see it while in the making! Then a panel discussion followed, on reimagining the future of women in green sectors in North Africa. The afternoon was kicked off with a screening of ‘Vivant’, a film expressing the subtle connections in life and nature. The Sci-FI Economics series continued after lunch with a workshop, part of which was a thought-provoking game, where the group imagined themselves as mayors of a collection of islands managing different scenarios. Filmmaker and screenwriter Michael Nash led us through a learning journey referencing his film, ‘Climate Refugees’ which will join an art time capsule that’s going to the moon in January 2024! We wound down our day with an awe-inspiring interactive demonstration of Ebru, traditional Turkish marbling art, with artist Aysegül Akyürek (brought to our pavilion with the support of Turkey).
