Monday 4th October 5:30 – 8:30 pm

  • Intro to the Coalitions
  • Climate Justice at COP26

There will be plenty of breaks and some fun zoom activities throughout!

If you can’t make these events, don’t worry! We will be holding more inductions in October. Everyone who has completed the induction will be able to sign up for shifts (we will be holding role-specific training in October) and complete their registration. Shifts are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis so please try to make the first round of inductions!

SCCS and the COP26 Coalition are looking for people to volunteer at COP26 between 31st Oct – 14th Nov 2021. To make sure climate justice is front and centre at the COP26 negotiations, with your help, we are organising the People’s Summit, Civil Society Hubs and Mobilisations. 

There are a number of roles and shifts available so that anyone interested can get involved:

  • Build and break
  • Welcome volunteer
  • March steward
  • Tech support
  • Welfare
  • Virtual People’s Summit Support


We will provide you with training and support so that you can fulfil your role with confidence. Click here to apply online or find out more in our info pack!

Requirements: We are looking for volunteers who are over 18 years old. Most roles require you to be in Glasgow during this period, but there are some roles that can be done from outside of Glasgow. You don’t need to have any particular experience or specialist skills for most roles.

Deadline: applications now rolling – we have a few spaces left so apply ASAP!

You can also email [email protected] with any questions about accessibility.
