About this Event

This event is part of a series of online sessions open to young people aged 16-30.

COP26 is a global United Nations summit about climate change and how countries are planning to tackle it, which is scheduled to be held in Glasgow from 1 to 12 November 2021. With the spotlight shone on Scottish and UK government climate policy, it represents a huge opportunity for the climate movement in Scotland to strengthen and mobilise.

Join us for this interactive workshop to learn more about COP and how to organise around it. We will chat about what happens at COPs, the influence and potential of COP26, and how to use the moment of COP for your campaigns and communities!

Anyone is welcome at this event, but the focus will mainly be on the Scottish context.


This interactive online workshop will run for 1.5 hours on Zoom with a short access break halfway through. All levels of experience are welcome. Please let us know about any access needs in the sign up form.

The event will have optional automated captions provided by Otter AI. We have a fund for BSL interpretation and can organise this if given enough notice. Please email [email protected] asap if you require an interpreter.

We also have small grants available for digital access (e.g. data, webcams). Please email [email protected]
