About this event
COP26, the United Nations climate conference, comes to Glasgow in November 2021, and the RSPB want to support local community groups to call for change and show the world what that change can look like. The first stage of this process is listening to your thoughts on how you would like to interact with COP26, and how we can support you in taking positive actions for both nature and climate within your community.
Benefits of getting involved:
- Hands-on training and best-practice guidance on how to install nature solutions (e.g., meadows, ponds, rain gardens) within your community
- Wildlife ID training and recording events
- Feed back nature and climate desires for the city directly to Glasgow City Council
- Host your own community events in the nature solutions garden
- Take part in climate change awareness events and campaigns
- Learn about what’s happening locally, nationally, and globally
- Connect with like-minded people and communities who want to safe-guard our planet for future generations
The RSPB are establishing a Nature Solutions Garden at the Glasgow Botanic Gardens to show how we can use grassroots activism and natural systems to move towards climate justice. We plan to host events, training, and volunteering in this garden, including the process of its design and creation. We want your help designing this garden, and the events we use it for, so that we are addressing genuine community concerns and can share things which we all care about.
We’re also running a programme of events in the run-up to COP26, and we’d love to have your input on which topics you’d like to see, and which formats work for you. As well as the events we’ll run, we’re looking for partnerships and opportunities to enrich all of our networks.
Both events follow the same format so there’s no need to attend both, please follow the link for the date you have booked onto.

(Thursday) 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
