The COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference, hosted by the UK in partnership with Italy, will take place from 31 October to 12 November 2021 in the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow.
The conference is set to incorporate the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the 16th meeting of the parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP16), and the third meeting of the parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA3).
For the first time, the Parties are expected to commit to an enhanced ambition since COP 21. With soaring energy prices and regular pushbacks on climate reforms, it’s important that we as a community show up united and make sure that the radical systems change is put into practice by using innovation – the expertise of our community.
EIT Climate-KIC is leading or contributing to sessions related to climate innovation during COP 26 and is inviting you to join virtually or meet up in person. Please visit our COP26 event page to see our growing number of sessions that you can participate in, including event collaborations in the Blue Zone with UNFCCC, the European Commission, EIT Food and more.
