Today, the Commonwealth Human Ecology Council is pleased to share the launch of the COP26 Hub. The Hub will be the centre of all things related to and involving COP26. The Hub will share the latest news, information, reports, videos and photos from the latest climate change conference and will feature direct updates from CHEC’s own delegates who are attending.
What is COP26?
Every year, world leaders come together to make important decisions about how the world tackles climate change. COP26 is the latest of these meetings. The acronym “COP” stands for Conference of Parties and this year it is being held in the United Kingdom.
At a time where the negative impacts of climate change are more known than ever, COP26 is an important and vital opportunity for the world to come together to tackle the collective climate issues we face. Time is running out and many see COP26 as a last chance to do something about it.
Arguably, COP26 is the most significant climate event since the 2015 UN climate conference in France which resulted in the famous Paris Agreement.
COP26 is the biggest summit the UK has ever hosted and is the most significant climate event since COP21, the 2015 United Nations climate conference which resulted in the Paris Agreement.
When and Where is COP26?
COP26 is taking place in Glasgow, United Kingdom. It will run between the dates of 31st October 2021 to 12th November 2021.
