The world is watching the most important climate event of the year: The COP26!

11 May 2020

The COP26 is the United Nations Conference on Climate Change 2021. The 26th annual summit takes place in Glasgow, Scotland, from October 31st to November 12t

For three decades, the UN has brought together all countries for global climate summits, called COP, which means “Conference of the Parties.” During this period, climate change has gone from being a marginal issue to a global priority.

Prior to COP26, the United Kingdom was dialoguing with all nations to agree on how to address climate change. World leaders arrived in Scotland with tens of thousands of negotiators, government representatives, companies, and civil society to experience entire days of conversations and agreements.

The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM) and its partners will hold various events during COP26. You may find below details about these events.
