About this Event
With COP26 taking place in Glasgow from 1st – 12th November this year, global leaders will come together to set the pathway to a sustainable, net-zero future. However, it is often the case that those who are most severely impacted by the climate emergency are least represented at events such as COP, where the key strategic decisions are made.
This webinar will examine how COP26 can overcome barriers to equity and inclusion, and ensure that all countries are represented equally in the climate conversations and decision-making taking place in Glasgow. It will also offer insight into issues around climate justice, exploring the intersecting inequalities that result from climate change, and how the solutions must be social as well as scientific.
In this webinar, we will hear from a range of brilliant guest speakers in addition to representatives from Malawi Scotland Partnership (MaSP) and 2050 Climate Group.
“In a few decades, the relationship between the environment, resources and conflict may seem almost as obvious as the connection we see today between human rights, democracy and peace.“
– Wangari Maathai
