COP in the Community
31 October – 12 November 2021
We believe that COP, held behind barriers and security, is something that everyone has a stake in and everyone has a right to take part in.
COP in the Community is our way of democratising COP. By providing an easy way for people to access the best live-streams of events inside the security barrier, and at civil society-led events outside the official spaces, everyone can take part.
Communities are invited to hold events with a combination of content from the live-streams from COP26 and their own discussions, talks and events related to their local community.
It’s time to make COP26 our own.
2. Plan your Event
Stream content from the official UNFCCC events and civil society spaces, and add in your own content with discussions, talks or workshops. Key events are the People’s Summit 7-10 November, and COP Blue Zone side events every day Monday-Saturday. And daily events summing up COP progress of the day at around 5 or 6pm.
3. Apply for our small event fund
If you need funding to support your event, we have a small fund available to help support COP in the Community Events.
This fund is to help communities, unable to physically take part in civil society activities in Glasgow during COP due to distance, covid or other accessibility issues, to set up their own COP events.
