The UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) is taking place in Madrid from 2-13 December.

Carys Cunningham and Elaine Halliday, Scenario Cohort 6 PhD students, are attending as part of the team from the University of Reading’s Walker Institute which has status as an Observer organisation.

At the same time, other Scenario students are taking part virtually via the Climate Action Studio (COPCAS), a dedicated space in the Walker Institute. The students work in small groups to attend sessions remotely, as well as interviewing key people, and writing blogs about their thoughts and experiences.

The best way to follow what’s happening is on Twitter (@carys_cunn, @Elaine_Envsci, @ClimActStudio, @SCENARIO_DTP) and the blogs posted the Climate Action Studio webpage.

This is the fourth year that Scenario and the Walker Institute have worked together on COPCAS.
