The Warwick Climate Negotiating Forum is Warwick's own simulation of the UNFCCC's annual Conference of Parties negotiations.
WCNF shows students the reality, nuance and difficulties of global climate negotiations by putting teams of students in the shoes of the national delegations that attend COP. Students are tasked with negotiating to make national and global commitments regarding emissions, deforestation, international climate finance, and other related topics, which are plugged in to simulation software to produce an estimated impact on global temperatures.
WCNF also offers a variety of speaker and workshop sessions designed to broaden delegates' understanding of topics surrounding the Climate Crisis, both during the principal conference weekend and in the surrounding weeks.
YOU! The people who participate in the simulation as the delegates (and make WCNF the amazing event it is) are Warwick students like yourself!
