The daily preview for Sunday 7th November is a bit different compared to our other previews. Why? Well, because the official COP26 pavilions use the Sunday as a day of rest and recuperation.
That means that there are no events taking place in the following Pavilions that we usually report on:
- Presidency Programme of Events
- Presidency Pavilion
- Indigenous Peoples Pavilion
- Science Pavilion
- Commonwealth Pavilion
However, that does not mean that there are no events. There is still plenty happening in the Green Zone Programme of Events and other side events happening online and around the world. You can find out what’s going on with these below:
Green Zone Programme of Events on Sunday 7th November
