The World Comes to Glasgow

Although this is now postponed, we’ll be working with students and staff to work out what COP26 means to Glasgow and the GSA. Join us throughout 2020 and 2021, start your own meetings.

Originally set for 9-19 November 2020, the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP) was coming to Glasgow to for COP26. Now set for Spring 2021, one of the major COP events, this global meeting will see every country around the World gather to discuss the climate emergency.

There’s plenty of ideas of how we at GSA and the local community should mark this occasion. We intend to make it a true Scottish and Glaswegian welcome, linking the issues of man-made climate change to social issues, highlighting how a greener, cleaner World will benefit all of us.

Freshers Week September 2020 will see the launch a focused COP26 funding stream to enable students to create work around the event and what it means to them. This will help support action right up to COP in Spring 2021.
