Can COP conferences happen online? 70.000 people flying to UAE.

The CO2 Footprint of 70.000 people flying to COP28 in UAE, Dubai is very high. Personal calculation result: 102 billion kg of CO2, if 70.000 people fly with 80 Airbus 380 for 5 hours. Also, it is more inclusive to organize online Events. So that we have more participants from low-income countries. This year oil & gas lobby dominates the participants. Should COP29 be organized online/ hybrid?

Do you agree?

    Interesting information, thanks. Nowadays there are a lot of written assignments, especially essays. I can’t cope with them, it’s good that I found specialists https://royalwriter.co.uk/ who will always help cope with any topic.

      This is a great idea which would greatly reduce the need for 70,000 people to fly to the UAE. This would have positive environmental and cost-saving benefits.

            This would have been the best option, but the main challenge will be digital access and reliable internet barrier, limiting participation from marginalized communities.

                @zelda_ninga_442 what if that power outage happened in some place? or even lack of power all over the world?

                Online COP conferences can cut emissions but face challenges like digital inclusivity.
