Climate change is set to dominate the agenda over the coming weeks as world leaders descend on Glasgow for COP26.

What is COP26?

COP stands for Conference of the Parties, and the summit will be attended by the countries that signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – a treaty that came into force in 1994.

This is the 26th COP summit and will be hosted in partnership between the UK and Italy. 

When is COP26?

The conference is being held in Glasgow from 31 October - 12 November 2021, a year later than planned due to delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

What have co-operatives got to do with climate change?

Like all businesses, co-operatives must look at the impact they're having on the environment and make changes to protect the planet. What makes co-operatives unique is the distinct values and principles, including concern for the community. As people centred businesses, co-operatives are already set up to make a big difference. Now it's time to take action!

What is the College doing?

We're exploring what role co-operatives could, should and must play in tackling one of the biggest challenges many of us will ever face.
