The 2019 UN climate change conference (COP25) will be held from 2 to 13 December in Santiago, Chile. The EU and its Member States will take part as Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The EU Pavilion will host a broad set of side events to stimulate debate on key thematic areas by engaging observers and facilitating dialogue with party delegates and other participants.
Stakeholder organisations can apply for a side event slot.
Due to the limited amount of slots, applicants will have to choose from a set of pre-defined topics in order to build their proposals. We strongly suggest for the submissions to be inclusive, by incorporating several organisations/stakeholders that can be representative of the topic or sector addressed, and covering current and/or emerging issues for climate change.
The applicants will be informed on the outcome by the end of September and the final programme will be published around mid-October.

Like at previous conferences, the European Union aims to offer to all interested organisations a space to organise side events during the 2 weeks of COP25.
While we are still awaiting a confirmation from the organisers, we expect to be able to offer about 100 slots of 90 minutes each. The rooms should hold 80-100 seats and are offered free of charge, with all relevant equipment.
The application process is open from 8 July 2019 to 15 September 2019.
The events will be selected on the basis of the online application form below.
