YouTube invited me to #COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt!

The purpose of conversations at this Pavilion is to have health and equity placed at the centre of climate negotiations; to provide evidence, initiatives, and solutions to maximise the health benefits of tackling climate change across regions, sectors, and communities.

Here are a few of the sessions I attended and personally learned a lot from:

  • The missing link: Understanding the intersection of climate and health
  • Communicating effectively on Climate change and health

I had the pleasure of meeting Her Excellency Mrs. Toyin Saraki, President of The Wellbeing Foundation Africa, who is doing great work looking after women’s and children’s health and empowerment in Nigeria and Africa. I also explored the Africa Pavillion.

After my sessions, I met with folks for dinner, including Alex Okosi, Managing Director of Emerging Markets at YouTube and creator Tayo Aina. Tayo is a photographer and filmmaker that uses storytelling to showcase a different perspective of Africa. We all had dinner at the hotel and headed to the Goals House NightCap.
