GLOBAL ACTION & COP26

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the UNFCCC, is the international community’s guiding treaty for international climate action. The signatories to the treaty meet every year in an event known as the Conference of the Parties, or COP. The 26th meeting was originally to be held in November 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, COP26 was postponed by a year, and will now be held November 1st to 12th, 2021 in Glasgow, UK.

2020 was supposed to be the ‘year of climate action’ but the postponement of COP26 until November 2021, has given countries an opportunity to begin recovery from the corona crisis and return renewed focus on climate action in the next year. However, we have to make sure our leaders feel the pressure to use this extra time well and increase their ambitions. The climate crisis isn’t waiting for us, and it’s more important than ever that we double down on our commitments, roll up our sleeves, and get to work as a global community.

GET INVOLVED

COP26 is quickly approaching and therefor the European Green Party together with the Green European Foundation is planning to host the Green Hub, a space to support green stakeholders in networking organizing events during the two weeklong COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland. The Green Hub will bring together actors in the Green family from Europe and the rest of the globe.

Green Hub at COP26 - Venue registration form

This form allows you to express interest in organising an activity during the COP26 at our Green Hub, as well as to provide feedback and inspiration on potential needs of the Green family for such a hub.

SO WHAT ARE GREENS DOING?

Greens are one of the few political parties that have members and organizations around the world. And that’s because it doesn’t matter where you live — serious climate action requires all of us, around the globe, to work together.

This year, we’ll be working together from the local, to the European, and to the global level, to keep the pressure on for a successful COP26.

 

Stay tuned, there's more to come!
