COP26 Climate Change Conference

COP26 Climate Change Conference – 9-19 November 2020

The UK has won the bid to host the 26th Conference of the Parties, known as COP26, Which will be held in Glasgow. Also in partnership with Italy which will host the preliminary events and a significant youth event as part of the agreement.

The conference has been described as the most important gathering on climate change since the Paris agreement was signed in 2015. Up to 30,000 delegates are expected to attend the event at Glasgow’s Scottish Events Campus (SEC) at the end of next year. It is designed to produce an international response to the climate emergency.

Lasting for two weeks, it would be the largest summit the UK has ever hosted, with up to 200 world leaders expected to attend for the final weekend.

Scotland was one of the first countries to agree that the current climate is in a state of emergency and feels that it is only right that the UK’s largest ever summit would be to help reverse the effects of climate change.
