COP26

 

The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021.

Three Rivers District Council are putting on a FREE screening of the film 2040, followed by a question and answer session with local experts who specialise in the many aspects of Climate Change — from energy and travel, to biodiversity and agriculture.

Panellists are set to include Tim Hill, Conservation Manager at Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust, Gareth Dunsmore, Chief Marketing Officer for McLaren, Dan Meredith, Energy Policy Expert for E.ON, Mark Kemp, Director of Environment and Infrastructure at Hertfordshire County Council, and Rose Lewis,  Programme Manager from Woodoaks Farm/Soil Association.

The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) is the happening in the UK this year – in Glasgow, from the 31st of October – 12th of November. The COP is perhaps best known for The Paris Agreement, which was signed at COP21 in 2015, and was considered a huge success at the time, however, there is still a very long way to go! COP26 aims to agree to: reduce global emissions to net-zero by 2050 and limit global warming to 1.5 degrees; adapt to protect communities and natural habitats, and commit to at least $100bn in climate finance every year.
