FAQFrequently Asked Questions

The COP28 Virtual Ocean Pavilion is an online platform which aims to raise the visibility of the ocean and showcase why the ocean matters in climate negotiations and to all life on our planet. A virtual format ensures that the Pavilion is able to respond to changes in the COP28 schedule and will reach a much wider audience than just those able to attend COP28.
You will be able to explore many of the great features that the pavilion offers (a User Guide is available within the VOP platform):
  • Join live panel sessions
  • Explore our ocean exhibition
  • Access on-demand events/videos
  • Watch interviews
  • Discover the Treasure Trove
  • Engage with experts
