COP26

At UKYCC, we work across four working groups: Community, Systems Change, COP and Communications. 

In November 2021, COP26 was held in Glasgow and members from all working groups attended the negotiations to demand Climate Justice!

To find out more about what each of our working groups got up to at COP26, visit their pages or watch our vlog below!

We demanded Climate Justice!

 

UK Youth asked the UK Government to achieve Climate Justice on the national and international stage through reparations, representation and responsibility.

We partnered with GUEST, The Resilience Project and YFoES to create the COP26 Youth Hub.

Held at the Queen Margaret Student Union (QMU) in Glasgow, it was a space for young people to come together over COP26 to rest, socialise, campaign, organise, learn and so much more! 

#CountdownToCOP

We counted down the days to COP26 by breaking it down. We jargon-busted all things COP! 

What actually is COP? And what is it for?

COP Photo Competition

We ran a free-to-enter photo competition for the duration of COP26 on the theme of policing and climate change.

 

It was a fun, radical and collaborative way for people from all over the world to come together and document the two weeks of COP26, from the streets of Glasgow, to worker and student strikes worldwide.
