From 1-12 November the COP26 Green Zone in Glasgow is open to the public to shine a light on the amazing and diverse world of climate action. For people in Arran who may wish to be involved but not able to travel to Glasgow, the following information and links give details about the events that are available online.
From all over the globe, youth activists, Indigenous Peoples, small and large businesses and grass roots communities will be bringing COP26 to life with cultural performances, exhibitions, talks, film screenings and technical demonstrations, all open to the public. Located in the iconic Glasgow Science Centre, on the south bank of the River Clyde, the Green Zone will welcome visitors from 9am – 6pm each day.
Over 200 events will take place in the Green Zone over the 12 days of the summit. Tickets will be available free of charge to the public. A maximum of six tickets can be booked for each group and you can book for three days. Please note that additional security checks will take place on site, so do leave large bags at home and give yourself extra time to arrive at your event.
Youth groups, civil society, academia, artists, business from across the UK and all over the world will be hosting events, exhibitions, cultural performances, workshops and talks. With over 100 exhibitors, 200 events and 11 sponsors taking over the space, there will be amazing opportunities to listen, learn and celebrate climate action.
You can join the events virtually by subscribing to the COP26 YouTube channel, or by exploring the Google Arts & Culture showcase coming soon. The listed events will include a link to each live stream that will be freely available.
There are still a limited number of tickets available to attend in person, and there will be a small number available each day.
