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.

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.

GET INVOLVED

During the two weeks of COP26 the European Green Party and the Green European Foundation together with many other Green affiliated organizations are hosting the Green Hub, a physical meeting space to support green stakeholders in organizing events during the two-week long COP26.
