We are delighted to launch a new dome in the Virtual Peatland Pavilion for COP26 UNFCCC.
The new ‘peatland and carbon’ themed dome joins existing inspiring peatland focused content including virtual peatland tours – allowing you to explore peatlands from the physical pavilion space and the comfort of your own home.
The virtual peatland pavilion complements the physical peatland pavilion, in the Blue Zone at COP26 in Glasgow, in highlighting the importance of global peatlands for the climate, people, and the planet as a key nature-based solution to climate change.
Over the coming days, weeks and months the virtual peatland pavilion will evolve as new content from across the global peatland community is added – providing a legacy of the peatland pavilion which will feature in future international conferences long after COP26 closes.
The Peatland Pavilion programme will continue to host sessions from across global peatlands until 17:00 (GMT) on Friday 12th November. Registration to engage with these sessions for free will remain open until the programme close on Friday. All sessions will be available on the online platform for registered participants to watch again at their leisure until the end of January 2022. After COP26, in December, the sessions will be available to view through a link in the Virtual Peatland Pavilion.
The Virtual Peatland Pavilion, showcasing content from a wide range of contributors, has been designed and curated by Richard Lindsay, Sustainability Research Institute, University of East London with support from Ben Clutterbuck, University of Nottingham Trent and Jack Clough, University of East London.
The Peatland Pavilion is a global collaboration between the UN, States, NGO’s, academia, practitioners, business communities and people. It has been created and coordinated by:
