The UK is due to host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 1 to 12 November 2021. The summit will bring parties together in order to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. It is widely regarded as pre-eminent opportunity to influence the world’s climate agenda.
This very practical one-hour workshop will focus on what COP26 is about, and how we can each contribute in influencing politicians and world leaders regarding their approach to Climate change.
