Most of the 8B stakeholders in the annual United Nations Conference of the Parties are unable to participate, as the conference engages 40K people at maximum. However, grassroots voices and engagement are crucial to making this event and process relevant to the many, many communities it aims to represent. Frank Granshaw, Portland State University professor and committed COP delegate, is looking for partners statewide to create "virtual bridges" to the 2023 COP28.
