...and other actions
leading up to COP26
The United Nations 'Conference of the Parties' Climate Change Conference (COP26) will be held this November in Glasgow. This is a crucial event, marking the sixth anniversary of the Paris Climate agreement, with its largely unfulfilled commitment to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. As the UN says, 'COP26 needs to be decisive' in holding nations to the Paris commitments, and ensuring that decarbonisation actually takes place.
In the run up to this event, Friends of the Earth and many other organisations are planning nationwide activities to show politicians that the public is holding them to account, and demanding real, significant measures to ensure the survival of life on this planet.
