For the first time, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow on 1 – 12 November 2021.
The climate talks will be the biggest international summit the UK has ever hosted; bringing together over 30,000 delegates including heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.
The challenge is not insignificant, but we must step up to it to save the environment we all live in. The UN Climate Change process is central to that collective action.
Key Conference themes:
- Determine new global targets on climate change: Tackle Climate change & bring about urgent climate action.
- Protect planet for future generations (UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration)
- Transformational change needed to unleash full potential of Paris Agreement
