COP26

The next big climate change conference, the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26), is scheduled to take place in Glasgow, UK, from the 2nd to the 12th of November 2021. It will gather country delegates, scientists, civil society observers, media, business representatives and other key stakeholders to decide on the next steps regarding the climate crisis and evaluate the progress made so far (or the lack thereof). The COP26 president Alok Sharma has the goal of organizing the “most inclusive COP in history”, as a response to the claims from civil society for true climate justice. 

 

We feel like COP26 can only be inclusive if young people from marginalized communities, more specifically BIPOC, from Latin America and the Caribbean are present on the ground in Glasgow. Climate change is a clear and dire threat to Latin America and the Caribbean, a threat in which the region has had little or no role in the making, but in which it is already an important part of the solution.

 

Therefore we are currently planning a project to attend COP26 in Glasgow.
