WORKING GROUP BACKGROUND
For many Greens around the world, the 26th United Climate Change Conference (COP26), which finally took place from 1st-12th November 2021 in Glasgow, UK, was our ‘last chance’ COP. Each year sees unprecedented climate events, and COVID-19 has catalysed growing inequalities in our societies.
The Global Greens COP26 Working Group was established in November 2020 to coordinate Global Green activities in the lead up to COP26. The Working Group brought together Greens from across all 4 regional Federations (Africa, Americas, Asia Pacific & Europe) and met monthly to discuss and coordinate Global Green priorities for COP26. A Coordination Team worked on event planning and external communications to assist with driving activities forward. Please consult our activities calendar for news on upcoming events.
The strategy of the group focused on showcasing bold and ambitious green policies to tackle climate change, and to meet the requirements set out in the Paris Agreement. The group also focused on highlighting positive narratives of Green parliamentarians around the world and establishing Global Green parties as political leaders to advance legislative agendas to address climate change.
