Side events

Official side events are a platform for admitted observer organizations, which have limited speaking opportunities in the formal negotiations, to engage with Parties and other participants for knowledge sharing, capacity building, networking and exploring actionable options for meeting the climate challenge.

UN agencies, admitted observer organizations and those Parties that partner with observers present their work or foster discussions on key issues, often engaging the audience in a Q&A session. Side events are 90 minutes in duration. A side event slot is offered free of charge.

Please find the schedule of confirmed side events here. Additional side events will be confirmed as space becomes available

Schedule of side events


Exhibits serve as a platform for observer organizations and Parties to highlight diverse climate change issues at UNFCCC conferences and provide a meeting point for participants. They cover a wide variety of topics and are loosely clustered by theme. An exhibit stand is offered free of charge.

The full list of exhibits and the exhibit materials are available through the link below.

1-Day Island

The 1-Day Island is a format of an exhibit that could be booked by duly accredited Parties and observers on a per-day basis to showcase climate action. The 1-Day Island could be used for open dialogues, meeting peers, launching initiatives, campaigns, projects, presenting a new project or the outcomes of implemented ones, in addition to the conventional use as an exhibit.

It allowed having a small standing audience of up to 20 people. The sound system was not provided, as the space was about 5 meters in diameter.

Please fill the booking form available here.

Climate Change Resources Corner (CCRC)

Parties and admitted observer organizations that do not have an exhibit booth were welcome to display their visual electronic materials (e.g. video, slideshow) on the CCRC screen, located in the side events & exhibits hall. 


Climate Action Studio

Climate Action Studio

Newly named as the Climate Action Studio, the Studio interviews at COP 23 will focus on collaborative climate actions between Parties and non-Party stakeholders as an accelerator of the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The interviews are by invitation only and will take place from 09.00 to 12.00 and from 15.00 to 18.00 during the two weeks of the conference. The interviews will be uploaded to the Climate Action Studio Youtube channel. The studio will also host other events between 13.00 and 15.00 and from 18.00 to 20.00, such as climate classrooms, Global Climate Action media events, and ceremonies, etc.
