Information from the COP26 website

« In November 2020, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) at the Scottish Exhibition Centre (SEC) in Glasgow.

The climate talks will be the biggest international summit that the UK has hosted in decades, bringing together more than 30,000 delegates including heads of state, climate experts, campaigners and to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.

Climate change is not a distant threat – we must act together to accelerate action to reduce emissions, protect our environment and adapt to the consequences that we are already seeing all over the world. The UN Climate Change process is central to that collective action.
