This week, the 25th UNFCCC Conference of the Parties begins in Madrid.
Once a year, almost every nation in the world, along with thousands of observing and participating institutions, from NGOs & IGOs to Universities and specialized agencies, convene to discuss Climate Change. Never has this event been more important, with just shy of 25,000 attendees at COP24 and even more predicted for this year’s event, cutting through the cacophony has become quite the challenge.
To help, we’ve analyzed the data, combing through tens of thousands of accounts to bring you the people at the heart of the event and those quiet but important voices at the fringes of the hubbub, so that you can keep on top of what’s going on, find new voices, and pay attention to what matters most.

Alongside the main event, there are hundreds of side events and exhibits happening. These are aligned with 36 themes, 5 of which we’ve taken a deeper look at throughout this report. The 5 areas are Energy, Agriculture/Land Use, Education, Health and Gender. Below is a graph showing the percentage of influencer discussion centered around these areas.
