Chile will be the host of the COP25 climate change event, bringing together 196 countries, the European Union, and various environmental organizations. It is expected that the event will achieve tougher and more ambitious commitments to protection of the planet.
On April 11, President Sebastián Piñera launched the COP25 climate change summit – which will take place in Chile in December 2019 – calling for tougher and more ambitious steps to be taken, and for appreciation of the urgent need for change in order to protect the planet.
“This summit will be a great opportunity for Chile and the world as a whole to truly acknowledge the fact that time is running out, and that the ever-increasing urgency of our objectives requires that we be more ambitious and demand more of ourselves. The time has come to act,” stated the President.
The President was accompanied by Chilean Environment Minister and President of COP25, Carolina Schmidt, along with other ministers, members of parliament, mayors, councilors, civil society organizations, environmental NGOs, young people, and children.
The President stressed Chile’s commitment to the move towards sustainable development and emphasized the importance of civic engagement and education in combating climate change, as well as implementation of mitigation and adaptation policies.

The main themes that will be covered during the summit were announced, including oceans, Antarctica, renewable energy, circular economy, ecosystems, biodiversity, and electromobility.
The COP25 logo was also unveiled, and it was announced that the event will be held in the Cerrillos Bicentenary Park, a civic hub that offers green spaces and connectivity.
It was also announced that Gonzalo Muñoz Abogair, environmental expert and co-founder and executive director of TriCiclos – the first certified B Corporation in South America – will be the COP25 Champion, in charge of advising the COP Presidency and communicating the event’s message both locally and internationally.
Chile has taken an active role in combatting climate change. It is stated to be the first country to invest in renewable energy, ban plastic bags, and lead the way in the move to electromobility. After Beijing, Santiago has the largest number of electric buses of any city in the world.
COP25 will take place in Santiago, Chile between December 2 and 13, 2019, and the pre-sessional period will run from November 26 to December 1 of the same year.
