COP26 Glasgow November 2021, Climb On Board

Mita Hosali

Hello ,
Welcome to the first Climate Action newsletter which UN News will send you twice a month, and every day during the Conference.

Our climate is now warmer than it has been in modern human history. The IPCC’s “red alert for humanity” comes less than three months before world leaders head to Glasgow to discuss ways to tackle climate challenges. It is a stark warning that we need to change the behaviours that got us into this mess. We need strong action now to reduce carbon emissions and lessen the impact of climate events already causing havoc across the planet and are all but certain to get worse in the coming years.

The UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) takes place from 31 October – 12 November 2021. The summit is a critical milestone in efforts to avert a climate catastrophe, with leaders from all over the world preparing to present ambitious plans to reduce global carbon emissions.

The science, the Paris Agreement, the political negotiations...there's a lot that needs to be explained.

In each installment of this newsletter, you'll be getting an insider’s peek at our exclusive curated content on how governments and ordinary folks are making common cause against what Secretary-General António Guterres has warned is the “biggest threat modern humans have ever faced”. We will share climate-related multimedia stories, explainers, social media highlights and provide you with insights across the many angles of this complex issue.

We encourage you to share this content – and to sign up for the newsletter. Click link below.
