Glasgow Eco Trust Gazette special – COP26 events

~~~ Gazette Special, Oct 2021 ~~~


In less than a week the COP26 climate conference and negotiations will start here in Glasgow.

There are hundreds of events, exhibitions, performances, webinars and talks happening as part of COP26. We’ve pulled together some key event listing websites as well as a list of 26 events you might be interested in.

COP26 is an amazing opportunity to learn from and connect with people and communities from all over the globe about the shared struggles of the climate emergency and how with passion, innovation, creativity, inclusivity, compassion, solidarity and more these struggles are being addressed. There is a lot at stake in these talks.

The events will be a mix of in person, hybrid and online and many of the events will also be recorded for later viewing. Please read the latest COVID guidance before attending any in person events.
