The programme of events has been released for the COP26 climate conference taking place between 31 October to 12 November in Glasgow close by the Fleet Alliance headquarters.

“COP26 must be the moment that the world comes together to deliver decisive action to protect our planet. During COP26 we want to inspire faster, more ambitious action from all countries, and all of society, that will help us keep alive the crucial Paris Agreement goal of limiting global temperature rises to 1.5C alive,” said COP26 President Alok Sharma.

“Our programme of themed days is aimed at doing just that. From energy and innovation to adaptation and youth empowerment, I hope that our rich schedule of events will allow all participants to leave Glasgow with the drive and the sense of urgency needed to transform the way we inhabit our precious planet, and safeguard its future. We will be hearing from a diverse range of voices over the two weeks, which should allow us all to take inspiration from the very best of climate leadership around the world. The time for action is now.”
