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

We are planning for the case that COP goes ahead as an in person event. But, of course, this is uncertain if circumstances change. We are tried to make plans that are as robust and resilient as possible, for example by shifting from one large central COP Hub to many smaller ones. However with safety as our absolute priority we may need to change plans as we get closer to COP.

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

Covid Code of Conduct and Other Information:

Our covid guidelines and other information will be posted on this page. All people booking at our hubs will need to agree to our covid and safety guidelines and will carry out their own risk assessments.
