The UN Climate Change Conference – COP26 takes place in Glasgow this coming November. It comes hot on the heels of the most recent and disturbing report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. With COP26 as the backdrop, join us this autumn for our #FirstWeds ‘Coping with COP: Reflections on the climate crisis, present and future’ series where we will be seeking wisdom and inspiration from youth, elders, and a wider cohort of community activists on the climate crisis, present and future.
At the first event of the series, ‘The Future is Now: Global Youth Voices on the Climate Crisis’ on 6 October, our youth panellists from Ireland, the Global South, and First Nations Indigenous from Canada, will reflect and share their perspectives on the present and the future, and their commitment and contribution to new forms of political activism. Our panellists will also discuss their views of the COP26.
