First things first – what does ‘COP26’  mean?!

Well, ‘COP’ stands for ‘conference of parties’ – a meeting that involves lots of different people working towards the same goal.

 

COP26 is the 26th meeting of members of the ‘United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change‘ (UNFCCC).

 

It might seem a bit of a mouthful, but all you really need to know is that COP26 is a huge, important meeting all about taking action against climate change.

 

COP26 will take place at the Scottish Events Campus in Glasgow, Scotland, and will be the biggest meeting of world leaders that the UK has ever hosted!
