Venues and Spaces for civil society at COP26

We want civil society to have the facilities and the spaces that they need to be effective at COP. This page gives an overview of where these spaces are, what they offer and how to book.

A note on Covid, COP and Coming to Glasgow

This year, more than ever, it is vital that we get our messages to decision makers at COP. With the constraints and risks that covid brings to our work, we have a responsibility to reduce the risks to people, while at the same time ensuring voices are heard


The COP26 Coalition and their partners have called for a Global Day of Action on November 6th, rather than a focus on all activity in Glasgow for this reason. They are organising a large march in Glasgow and London and local mobilisations throughout the country. More info here

For anyone coming to Glasgow, please ensure that you have accommodation confirmed – covid makes last-minute planning difficult.  We are setting up a network of Homestay hosts to accommodate activists and campaigners (subject to covid guidelines) but this might be limited and so please only travel if you have accommodation.

Due to the uncertainty of the covid situation all venue bookings are subject to change and variation in numbers of people who can be accommodated in the spaces. All people booking will need to agree to our covid and safety guidelines and will carry out their own risk assessments.
