The UK has won the bid to host the 26th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC, known as COP26, following a partnership with Italy, which will host preparatory events and a significant youth event, as part of the agreement.
Up to 30,000 delegates are expected to attend the event at Glasgow’s Scottish Events Campus (SEC) from 9 to 19 November 2020.
It’s a good news for Scotland and a good news for the UK … there are not so many these days !
Claire Perry will be the visage of COP26. She was yesterday at the UK embassy, at the occasion of a reception offered by Ed Llewellyn, British Ambassador to France and Monaco.
“In 2020, world leaders will come together to discuss how to tackle climate change on a global scale – and where better to do so than Glasgow, one of the UK’s most sustainable cities with a great track record for hosting high-profile international events.” she said to journalists early this week.
Good luck, Claire ! And happy to help.
