Climate events


2021: The year that counts

2021 presents an unmissable opportunity for change. In 2021, world leaders will come together during key global conferences and forums to set the environmental agenda for the next decade and beyond. Crucial political decisions will be made on climate action, nature, and sustainable development - decisions that will directly affect the fate of humanity and our planet for years to come.

The main event is COP26, where world leaders and experts will come together in Glasgow to talk about our climate. Show them how important action on climate change and nature is to you by getting involved in climate events this year. Put a spotlight on the need for change and support those that are doing so.

There is a list of some of the annual events below.
