Glasgow is preparing to host the United Nation’s climate change conference known as COP26, as delegates from around the world prepare to meet to discuss safeguarding the future of the planet and reversing the climate crisis.
The summit will take place at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) from 31st October to 12th November. The conference will welcome around 120 world leaders and more than 20,000 delegates are also expected in the city. With the focus on Glasgow, it’s important that we do all we can to lead more sustainable lives with associated health and wellbeing benefits.
Each day of COP26 will focus on a different theme, from clean energy, zero-emission transport and protecting nature, across themes like science, innovation and inclusivity.
However, it is anticipated that given the size of the event - the largest Glasgow has ever seen - that from mid-October until mid-November, there will be some disruption within the area. We need to be aware of the direct impact COP26 will have on us before, during and after the conference ends.
Partner organisations are working together to minimise any impacts, but for the latest information and advice – or to understand how COP26 might affect you or your business – go to www.getreadyglasgow.com (Please note: People may experience issues when opening this link in the Internet Explorer browser.
