A ground-breaking global competition inviting students and educators worldwide to contribute their innovative solutions to combat climate change has launched.
The Burjeel Holdings Oxford Saïd Climate Change Challenge culminates in a ceremony for ten finalists during the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai, in December – five teams from the student category and five individuals from the teacher category. They will have the remarkable opportunity to present their solutions to a distinguished audience in Dubai, and the winners will earn a coveted spot in a bespoke programme at Oxford Saïd. Furthermore, they will gain access to a vibrant community of influential entrepreneurs and thought leaders in innovation and social impact from around the globe.
The initiative, forged through a partnership between one of Europe's leading business schools and one of the Middle East's premier healthcare providers aims to give young people the visibility and recognition they deserve on the global stage. As the climate crisis looms large, it is crucial to address the challenges that future generations will face in the coming decades.
