The UN Climate Conference COP27 began this week in Egypt. Leaders gathered to discuss climate action, propose solutions to the current crisis and explore how technology can help to tackle some of the biggest issues facing the planet.
Blockchain project, Unique Network partnered with leading climate organisations, teamed up to present the Digital innovation pavilion at the event. Polkadot, a leading Layer 1 blockchain, had a presence at the global event to discuss the different use cases and the energy efficient blockchain solutions.
IAAI GloCha, Un-Habitat and the Climate Chain Coalition are on the ground at COP27, from November 6 - 18. Unique Network will lead blockchains' role in the fight against climate change at the COP27 Digital Innovation Pavilion. The technology focused pavilion provides a stage to showcase leading climate tech projects including the ongoing Digital Art 4 Climate project and other advanced NFT related projects.

Delivering sustainable solutions for climate action
Unique Network have been actively supporting the vision to use NFTs and advanced blockchain technology to deliver sustainable solutions for the future. In September, the Digital Art 4 Climate project was presented at a conference in the United Nations Headquarters, where the CEO Alexander Mitrovich also represented the industry on UN Web TV.
The COP27 Digital Innovation Pavilion is a space in which digital solution providers and the global climate action and climate governance communities can meet and learn from one another in order to find pathways towards accelerated, environmentally sound and socially accepted deployment of emerging technologies like blockchain technology, AI, IoT and other digital innovations for all-of-society climate action empowerment and implementation of the global climate action goals of the Paris Agreement.
The pavilion is being co-hosted by Unique Network, The HBAR Foundation, SUSTEX (Sustainability Tech Expo) and Carbon Market Exchange and its program is being presented in collaboration with a wide range of partners incl. Evercity NovaSphere Canada @Sustainable Digital Finance Alliance ClimateScience Cointelegraph UN Habitat Youth programme @UNEP World Environment Situation Room, government of Slovenia, UNIDO ClimaTechRun, ACE_AT Arts Help @iycforyouth @Global Youth Development Institute MetaCOP @Haqq Association Social Alpha Foundation United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) Open Earth Foundation.
As the journey to COP27 begins and the world focuses on climate action to tackle our biggest climate issues it is worth reflecting on the impact of digital art already this year.
