Dr Antonenko and the other three judges evaluated 12 proposals to support one of the UN Climate Conference (COP26) Goals. The teams of experts presented to judges their work on wide-ranging national and trans-national challenges with a focus on:
• Climate finance and collaboration
• Climate change mitigation
• Adaptation to climate change.
The winning team will present their ideas at a closed roundtable discussion with senior climate change experts and government officials within the COP26.
The Climate Change Hackathon was an excellent opportunity to develop innovative climate-related policy proposals and exchange opinions among the alumni of the UK scholarship programmes ahead of the COP26 meeting. The team of the Energy Charter Secretariat always stands ready to share experience, knowledge and skills with young experts in the energy field, especially taking into account the importance of urgent actions to achieve long-term global climate goals. As of 2021, the Secretariat employs 24 highly qualified international experts, including three Chevening alumni.
