Laura Espinoza is travelling to COP 28 in Dubai as part of her research into indigenous land conservation, sovereignty and climate change.

The postgraduate grew up in Washington DC, so political engagement is something she’s well used to. Her research into Environmental Policy will look at how engagement with indigenous communities within the USA can help environmental use o f land: so a chance to go to the United Nations’ COP to see how the international community plans to tackle climate change is a dream come true and something she hopes will directly benefit her research.
