The Glasgow climate talks

In November 2021, global leaders will descend on Scotland for the Glasgow climate talks (also called COP26).  The talks are a key opportunity to demand justice for those most affected by the crisis and hold leaders to account.

Communities in Wales and across the world are being devastated by floods, heatwaves, wildfires, and other disasters, because climate breakdown is making extreme weather worse and more likely to happen. And those who are feeling the impacts of climate change the most are doing the least to cause it. 

It’s not just us that are suffering. Our natural world is in danger too – bees, birds, butterflies, and other wildlife are in steep decline.  

Living in Wales, there are many things you can do, as an individual or as part of a group, to get involved. 

What can you do?
