From the announcement sent out on January 21st by the UK Government Cabinet Office and Alok Sharma MP, President of the COP26 Climate Talks:
Applications have opened today to help shape the COP26 venue in Glasgow ahead of the crucial climate change talks later this year.
Groups of all kinds have the opportunity to bring climate action to life through fun and lively events, displays and workshops in the areas where many of the world’s leaders will be meeting in November.
This is likely to include demonstrations of virtual reality technology; showcasing innovation helping to tackle global climate change; opportunities for local voices from around the world through culture and arts; and youth groups provided a platform to show the impact they are making.
Organisations are being encouraged to work together with collaborative proposals wherever possible, with a focus on profiling the voices of those most impacted and on the front line of climate change.
