COP 26 and the University of Edinburgh
COP 26 - a global conference that tackles the climate crisis - is coming to Glasgow. Find out how the University is contributing and how you can get involved.
“COP 26” is a major United Nations climate change summit taking place in Glasgow from 31 October -12 November 2021 under the presidency of the UK government. Named the “26th session of the Conference of the Parties” – shortened to COP 26 – the conference is an important place for countries to come together to discuss how climate change will be tackled and to agree on global and national targets.
University of Edinburgh researchers have played a pivotal role in informing global climate change mitigation policy for nearly two decades. Among the first to unequivocally demonstrate the link between human-caused greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, their research formed the scientific foundation of the Paris Agreement.
