      Climate talks in the UK

      From 1-12 November 2021, the eyes of the world will be on the UK as the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) takes place in Glasgow.

      Ahead of the conference, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost, Professor Julie Sanders, highlights the University’s commitment to social and environment justice and shares her thoughts on COP26.

      You can also watch the most recent event in our Newcastle Debates series, which asked ‘How will the North East confront the climate crisis’.

      Coordinated action to tackle climate change

      The climate talks will be the biggest international summit the UK has ever hosted, bringing together:

      • heads of state
      • climate experts
      • young people
      • civil society
      • trade unions
      • faith groups
      • indigenous peoples

      Over two weeks, conference attendees will work to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change and protect the planet for future generations.

      COP26 provides a focal point for collective action on climate change.
