The United Nations 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) is set to take place in Glasgow, Scotland in November of 2021.
Climate Generation will send a delegation of Minnesotans to COP26 to bring the international climate negotiations to life.
This year’s delegation will represent professionals that support the work of Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE). ACE is a term adopted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to denote work under Article 6 of the Convention (1992) and Article 12 of the Paris Agreement. The overarching goal of ACE is to empower all members of society to engage in climate action, through education, training, public awareness, public participation, public access to information, and international cooperation on these issues.
The COP26 delegation of climate leaders will witness and share back their experiences, as a unique opportunity to inspire the continued leadership of these individuals, and motivate further action by their followers.
Preliminary applications for our COP26 delegation are now open. This preliminary application is open to all, with priority selection of applicants in Midwest states.
COP26 represents a pivotal moment in time for globally increasing ambition on greenhouse gas reduction. In addition, with the United States officially returning to the Paris Agreement, a strong U.S. presence of support it is critical.
