Climate Oxford Business Network

The Climate Oxford Business Network (OBN) is a network for climate change and sustainability enthusiasts. 

The Climate OBN focuses on three primary areas:

  • creating opportunities for students to engage in deep discussion about climate change and sustainability
  • building a community of climate-conscious leaders
  • providing networks for students to explore career opportunities within this area

The OBN takes a holistic view on issues from climate justice to sustainable finance, to circular economy and more, through global perspectives.

Insights from our students

Climate Change Challenge

For the second year running Saïd Business School and Burjeel Holdings are running the Climate Change Challenge - a global competition for high school students (aged 15 to 18) and teachers.   

The challenge invites young people and educators across the world to contribute their ideas and take action towards creating solutions to the greatest and most complex threat to humanity: the climate crisis. The finalists will present their solutions at COP29, the UN Climate Conference in Baku, Azerbaijan.

By fostering collaboration, innovation, and knowledge exchange, we can address the climate crisis and create a more sustainable and equitable world for all.

The next generation will inherit a planet suffering from the extreme effects of climate change, in ways we do not yet understand. We do know that no country, continent or community will be left untouched. From the devastation wrought by drought and flood, threatening the supply of food and water, to the ever-rising number of climate change refugees, tomorrow’s leaders will have significant climate change challenges to contend with.

Burjeel Holdings, one of the leading healthcare providers in the Middle East, is an organisation committed to protecting life. Oxford Saïd, one of Europe's leading business schools, is committed to giving future business leaders the tools and knowledge to innovate in creating a better, safer, cleaner world. That is why, together, we have launched a global competition for today's teachers and tomorrow’s leaders, entrepreneurs and change makers, that seeks to protect life on Earth.
