Dear IFMSA Family,
We are delighted to open the call for participants to attend the COP simulation organized with IPSF EMRO, happening online on the 28th, 29th and 30th of August.
What is COP?
The Conference of Parties, known as COP, is the decision-making body responsible for monitoring and reviewing the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It brings together the 197 nations and territories – called Parties – signed on to the Framework Convention.
What is COP simulation?
Climate Summit is an online role-playing Simulation of the UN climate change negotiations at COP organized by IFMSA EMR and IPSF EMRO. Through the simulation, participants can explore the necessary speed and level of action nations must take to address global climate change. Participants will work together to reach a global agreement that successfully keeps climate change well below two ̊C and aims to stay within 1.5 ̊C, the international goals formally recognized in the Paris climate agreement. During the event, participants gain knowledge on climate science & its impact on health, engage in the drama and tensions of Climate governance , and then reflect on how the experience challenges their assumptions about climate action and global equity.
How to apply?
What are the selection criteria?
A total of 40 participants will be selected as such:
- 20 participants from IFMSA (15 from the EMR region and 5 from other regions)
- 20 participants from IPSF (15 from the EMRO region and 5 from other regions)
The selection will follow a standard selection scoring criteria taking into account:
- Knowledge of Climate change

However we encourage everyone, regardless of their level of knowledge and experience to apply
So what are you waiting for? Join us in the very first COP simulation!
