2020 has been a year like no other. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted lives, livelihoods,
and communities around the globe. We are since dealing with a crisis that is turning economies upside
down, while simultaneously dealing with the increasing impacts of the climate and ecological
emergency. Governments must act to secure a more resilient, healthy, and sustainable future – and
they must act now. COP26 is scheduled to take place from Monday 1st November – Friday 12th
November 2021 in Glasgow. What can we expect from the 2021 Summit? Why is COP26 important?
As we enter the critical decade of climate action, the time for action is now. In order to achieve a resilient
and zero carbon future – every stakeholder must play their part.
