For many Greens around the world, the 26th United Climate Change Conference (COP26), which is scheduled to take place from 1st-12th November in Glasgow, UK, is our ‘last chance’ COP. The year 2020 was a year of unprecedented climate events, and COVID-19 has catalysed growing inequalities in our societies – we see this as a crucial moment to mobilise greens to rally around COP26 for #ClimateJustice.
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 brings together greens from across all 4 regional Federations (Africa, Americas, Asia Pacific & Europe) and meets monthly to discuss and coordinate Global Green priorities for COP26. There is also a Coordination Team working 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 focuses 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 focuses 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.
Some upcoming events planned include (more detail coming soon):
- Panel – Green Perspectives on Biden Climate Leaders Summit – April
- Event – The Green 7 (7 Green Ministers – an alternative to the G7 Summit event) – June
