World leaders and experts will meet in Glasgow in November at the global climate talks, COP26.
Global problems need global solutions. The decisions made at COP26 will shape how governments respond (or not) to the climate crisis. They will decide who is to be sacrificed, who will escape and who will make a profit. So far, governments have done too little too late: colluding with corporations and hiding behind greenwashed ‘solutions’ that actually don’t exist yet, that don’t address the scale of the problem, and in many cases rely on more exploitation of people and the planet.
COP26 is happening at a crucial moment in history. Across the world and across movements, we are seeing a new wave of resistance, global solidarity and grassroots organising. We have a unique opportunity to rewire our system as we recover from the pandemic. We can either intensify the crisis to the point of no return, or lay the foundations for a just world where everyone’s needs are met.
Join our webinar and find out everything you wanted to know about climate change negotiations but were too afraid to ask. Learn the basics of international climate change politics and the infamous COP, or “Conference of the Parties,” ahead of the COP26, scheduled to be held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.
Expert speakers will share their knowledge of the history and process of the talks as well as the major issues and main players. You will learn about the real “rules of the game” and have a chance to ask questions big and small of activists, policy analysts and journalists with years of experience working behind the scenes of major summits.
The session will be recorded and available on our website www.cop26coalition.org immediately afterwards.
