120 future business leaders from 8 business schools and more than 30 countries met in Cologne on 12–14 May 2023 for the 15th edition of the simulation of UN climate negotiations.

This unique educational initiative has the official backing of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Students worked together to obtain a consensus around ambitious strategies to implement the global objective of maintaining climate change below 2 degrees, the point of reference agreed in Paris.

It was a unique opportunity for our students to learn and develop the needed skills to face one of the most urgent social problems of our time: the science, the evolving policies and the role of companies in dealing and contributing to climate change challenges.
