The COP27 global climate-change conference will take place this year in person, but some people think the event could be run more sustainably if it were to take place online. This is because they think the cost of the event, along with the greenhouse-gas emissions from air and road travel, go against the aims of COP27 — to slow down climate change. Covid-19 restrictions and other issues, for example, the cost of travel, have also meant that some countries have been unable to attend.
However other people disagree and say that events like COPs should be in person as they are too important to do online. They believe that agreements and relationships are handled much better when people are face to face.
