Spaces for Change - Glasgow Community Venues for COP26

People from all over the world will come to fight for climate justice this November and we want them to feel the distinctiveness of our city, Glaschu, the ‘Dear Green Place’ and the warmth of a Scottish welcome. 

Spaces for Change is a network of community-run venues that have opened their spaces up for hire during COP26.  Civil society organisations looking for meeting rooms, exhibition space, workspace and event space can contact these venues directly to book.

Do you have a space to offer?

If you manage a venue within an hour travel of Glasgow including community spaces and halls, places of worship, non-profit co-working spaces, local authority venues – even if you just have a meeting room that can be booked by externals – we want to connect you in to this network. 

Fill out the form below and someone will be in touch to talk through it with you. 

Do you have a shop window or exhibition space?

We’re anticipating that several groups will be unable to physically travel to Glasgow this year due to Covid restrictions. 

However, it’s incredibly important that their voices are brought to the summit and we are looking for spaces in and around Glasgow that could display their work – this could be a shop window, shopping centre or exhibition space. Could you help? 

Are you looking to hire a space?
