Glasgow's Green Map for COP26
SCCS and Glasgow Eco-Trust are bringing together an open-source online map of community resources and sustainable and locally run businesses for those coming to COP26. We would like to help COP26 delegates and activists find places to eat, shops and visit that bring value into local communities and give them a welcome to our city. The map will also stay as a legacy for Glasgow after COP.
To find out how to get involved in the creation of the Glasgow Green Map, follow the tutorial below. Please also join one of our workshops – sign up below.

More Information about the Glasgow Green Map
In the run up to COP26, Stop Climate Chaos Scotland and Glasgow Eco Trust are teaming up to create an online green map of Glasgow using the platform Open Green Maps. By mapping the COP26 hubs, this project will guide local communities and conference participants to the spaces that the city is dedicating to COP26-related activities and events.
Through engagement with the Glasgow community, we will also create a COP26 legacy map which will involve the mapping of local, sustainable, and community-run resources, acting as a platform for people to share their favourite spots in Glasgow. These will include local cafes, zero waste shops and community gardens; encouraging the community and people visiting the city to shop and consume sustainably. Post-COP26, this will create a legacy that can be built on by the community for an ever-greener Glasgow.
