Up to 10 virtual events outsourced to partners in different parts of the UK will seek to identify more diverse organisational strengths and profiles across the UK that may contribute towards more informed national decision making, in the build up to the UK’s hosting of COP26.
Across the UK, businesses, local government, civil society and others are increasingly active in global efforts to prevent and adapt to climate change. This November the UK hosts the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, and Wilton Park is working with chambers of commerce across the UK to ensure British perspectives and expertise are fully integrated into these global discussions.
Nine virtual events in different parts of the UK, including Glasgow, will gather local policy expertise and insights from business, local government and civil society. Their views will help inform Wilton Park and wider UK and international thinking and action on climate change in the run up to COP26.
