Reminder: COP side events registration closes today

A quick reminder if you represent an organisation registered for COP17 – today, August 19, is the closing date for registering exhibits and side events in the official UN precinct (access to which depends on being registered with the UN as an observer or delegate).

Go here for the UNFCCC’s registration system – it does seem to work fairly smoothly.

Some tentative, perhaps unreliable advice: I am told by others with more experience of arranging these side events, that one need not register an absolutely final line-up of speakers, so there is some flexibility there.

Of course, there should still be many opportunities for organising civil society events outside of the formal COP.

    • Hi, sorry, but this is a civil society blog – we can’t help you with registration for the UNFCCC COP/conference – for that, you will have to work through an accredited organisation, and since nominations for delegations closed at the end of September, it is now highly unlikely that you can get in, unless you are able to get media accreditation – and that will obviously require that you be supported by a recognised media organisation: http://unfccc.int/press/calender_of_events/accreditation/items/2987.php. Of course, you can still participate in the open civil society events that will be happening in Durban at the same time.

    we would want to exhibit a devise that is used to generate water from the air. How can we do it at COP 17 ?

  5. I like the idea to involve the civil society even after this formal conference. it is actually one step towards sustainable development in regard to climate change.

    COP 17 : I am a school teacher…would love to volunteer in some way…but alos keen to know how and when I could bring 70 of my learners to visit and learn through the Climate Change Train.

    • Hello Pam,

      The climate train is being organised by Indalo Yethu. You can find out about the climate train from Douglas Kativu .

      For volunteering opportunities… I’m afraid nothing leaps immediately to mind please look at the various events that are listed on this site.
