Together For Our Planet:
How faith communities can engage with COP26

An information and discussion event via Zoom
Monday 24th May
6:30 – 8:30 pm

Glasgow will become centre stage for the United Nations Climate Change summit (COP26) this November, as countries come together to negotiate the future of our planet. It is the biggest conference the UK has ever hosted and the eyes of the world will be on us.
This is a unique opportunity for faith communities in Scotland to foster unity and apply their faith in local action together.

Join us to find out about COP26; why it matters to Glasgow, Scotland’s faith communities, and the world; and how you can get involved.
Hear from inspiring speakers and discuss your thoughts with people from other backgrounds about how you and your faith community can take action.

You will learn about:
• Why action on climate change is so important
• What COP26 is about and how faith communities can make a difference
• What COP26 will look like and how your faith community can help welcome the world to Scotland
• Scottish Interfaith Week coinciding with COP26 and the interfaith actions you can get involved in
Places are limited so please book soon to avoid disappointment.
