From the 7-10th November 2021, as world leaders meet to discuss the planet’s future, the COP26 Coalition will host The People’s Summit for Climate Justice. The decisions made at COP26 will shape how governments respond (or not) to the climate crisis. But justice won’t be handed to us by world leaders or delivered by corporations. Only we can imagine and build the future that works for all of us.
The solutions that we need already exist and are being practiced, but governments lack the political will to act. Indigenous and frontline communities have known the solutions for centuries.
The People’s Summit as an alternative to business as usual of false solutions and inaction at the COP negotiations. The People’s Summit is a global convergence space for movements, campaigns and civil society – from indigenous struggles to trade unions, from racial justice groups to youth strikers. Join them in imaging our collective future, combining knowledge and building the movement for climate justice from the ground up. They will discuss the injustices we are currently facing, imagine the future we want to build, and strategies how we can get there.
