Chilean scientists, academics, activists and authorities will be present at the United Nations climate summit.

The Chile Pavilion at the 27th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) was inaugurated today in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. In this space, under the responsibility of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile, about 50 events will be held with the objective of discussing climate change.

"Having our own flag is undoubtedly a tremendous opportunity to make visible Chile's commitment to mitigating and adapting to climate change. In this sense, our country is strongly promoting an agenda that considers both the protection of the terrestrial and marine environment, which we have called Turquoise Foreign Policy," said the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Antonia Urrejola.

The chancellor stressed the importance of international collaboration to address the climate crisis. "No country alone can solve the problem of climate change. Therefore, promoting meetings that allow us to share experiences and initiatives is very important to advance effective solutions to address the triple crisis: climate, biodiversity loss and global pollution," she said.

Scientists, academics, activists and Chilean authorities will be present at the United Nations climate summit. The events to be held in the Chilean pavilion will address multiple topics relevant to climate change, which will have an intersectoral character and will deal with green hydrogen, adaptation, financing, oceans, energy transition, forests, gender, environmental education, marine protected areas, among others.

This global meeting will be attended by the Minister of the Environment, Maisa Rojas; the Minister of Energy, Diego Pardow; the Minister of Science, Technology, Knowledge and Innovation, Silvia Díaz; and the Minister of Transport and Telecommunications, Juan Carlos Muñoz.
