The Fossil of the Day Award is a daily “award” given to those countries who are the best at being the worst and doing the most to do the least. Countries are nominated by CAN and the award is determined by a CAN Members’ vote. 

As usual, the COP27 in person Awards Ceremony will take place each day at 18h00.

Importantly, it will be running on a repetitive cycle that starts in the morning; runs throughout the day; and continues the next morning at which time the next cycle starts as well.
