Originally planned to take place in Santiago de Chile, due to the latest developments of the crisis in that country it will no longer be possible to host the event there. On the 5th of November Spain (Madrid) has been announced as the new host of the world’s most important climate change event, bringing together 196 countries, the European Union, and various environmental organizations. It is hoped that the event will achieve tougher and more ambitious commitments to the protection of the planet.
COP25 will take place at IFEMA – Feria de Madrid, in Madrid, Spain, between December 2 and 13, 2019, under the Presidency of the Government of Chile and with logistical support from the Government of Spain. The President-designate for the conference is Ms. Carolina Schmidt, Minister of Environment of Chile. More information on COP 25: United Nations
