Virtual Peatland Pavilion

COP26 featured the first Peatland Pavilion at a UNFCCC Climate Change Conference. The Peatland Pavilion highlighted the importance of global peatlands for the climate, people, and the planet as a key nature-based solution to climate change across the 12 days.

We were delighted to welcome over 1,680 delegates to the online Peatland Pavilion conference platform where all of the sessions that took place in the physical Peatland Pavilion in the Blue Zone were live streamed and recorded. Recordings of the sessions are now available to watch here. Below we have highlighted some of the sessions centred around peatlands and the UK:

The Virtual Peatland Pavilion exists to complement the physical Peatland Pavilion as a long-lasting resource and knowledge hub. Created by Richard Lindsay (University of East London), the Virtual Peatland Pavilion has a wealth of digitised content for you to enjoy and new domes and content will be added during its life span. We encourage you all to explore and share this fantastic resource.

We hope you continue this journey with us to advocate for the conservation, restoration, and sustainable management of peatlands, because #PeatlandsMatter for our nature and climate future!

 

The Peatland Pavilion is a global collaboration between the UN, Member States, NGO’s, academia, practitioners, business communities and people. It has been created and coordinated by:
