What is COP26, why does it matter, and what can I do about it?

Tuesday 26 October, 11am, 1.D.02 Sighthill campus

No registration required - just turn up on the day!

One week before COP26, 'the most important conference in Scotland’s history', come along to find out more about what it will deal with and why it is so important.

We will hear from the perspective of young Kenyan women living in vulnerable communities already affected by climate change. We will discuss how natural ecosystems like forests and peatlands can help reduce the pace and effects of climate change. We will talk about the University’s plans for responding to the climate emergency. And we will consider what we can all do, as individuals, citizens and members of Edinburgh Napier University, to make our voices heard at COP and beyond.

There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions and everyone, whether eco-activist, eco-sceptic or just eco-bewildered, is welcome to come. Please note that we are limited to 50 attendees, so make sure to come sharp to get yourself a seat!
