In November 2021, more than 200 world leaders will meet for an event, known as COP26, to discuss climate change. Read on to learn more about this super important event…

What is COP26?

First things first – what does ‘COP26’ even 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’s 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.

It began in 1994, when many world leaders became part of the UNFCCC and agreed that their countries would help to combat global warming. Since then, a COP has been held every year so that decision-makers can get together and discuss what to do next.

Where is the meeting?

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

Each year, COP takes place in a different country. COP25 was held in Madrid, Spain, in 2019, during which Greta Thunberg gave a now-famous speech. During this meeting, important targets for cutting carbon dioxide emissions were agreed.

COP26 was supposed to take place in November 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it was delayed by a year. The conference is now happening on the 1st-12th of November 2021.

Who will be at COP26?

Representatives from nearly every country in the world! This includes world leaders like the U.K.’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and President Joe Biden of the U.S.A., along with a whole host of other important people.

Members of the press will attend, to report about the conference on TV, radio and in newspapers. Plus, representatives from over 2,000 NGOs* are usually present, too.

*NGOs are ‘non-governmental organisations‘, such as Action Against Hunger, Greenpeace, and WWF – all have an interest in the outcome of COP26.

What will they talk about?

At COP meetings, governments from across the globe agree on targets for the future, with the aim of reducing greenhouse gases and protecting the planet. These decisions affect people all over the globe; they help us all work together to become greener and more sustainable.

Five years ago at COP21 in Paris, every member of the UNFCCC signed the Paris Agreement – an international commitment to tackle climate change. At COP26, members will review whether this agreement is working, and highlight any progress.

In the Paris Agreement, nations agreed that they would:

1. Reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and invest in renewable energy sources, like wind and solar power.

2. Prevent global temperatures from warming by more than 2°C, and try to keep the increase as low as 1.5°C.

3. Help less-developed countries become more environmentally friendly, by supporting them financially.

4. Review progress on the Agreement every five years.

Why is COP26 important?

COP26 is the most important COP since 2015, when the Paris Agreement was created. It is an opportunity for the world to see what has been achieved since these targets were set – and pay attention to what hasn’t.

Hopefully, there will be new decisions on how to cut carbon emissions, and the world will make more progress on combatting climate change.

The after-effects of the coronavirus pandemic will also have an impact on COP26. Many governments are now paying more attention to the environment. As a result, they are hoping to rebuild their economies in a greener and more sustainable way.

Can I get involved?

You might not be able to attend COP26, but you can still make your voice heard! There are tonnes of ways to get involved with the UK’s ‘Year of Climate Action‘.

Simply talking about climate change with family and friends can inspire others to learn more about it and why they should care. Or if you want to take your passion one step further, why not write to your MP? You could tell them what YOU think is important, and let them know how passionate you are about saving our planet!

What do you think governments should decide at COP26? Let us know in the comments below!

    I think that in Glaswow the thigs of the climate change theyr are going to improved litel bit the polution

  • Kaci+Harri

    We need to take responsibility we are apart of this. If we do not do something the next generation will suffer a bad life with pollution and land fill. I am sure u can think of the 7 r's what are Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Recycle, Repair, Reuse, Rot.


    Climate change is a big thret to our world and we need to act now and do something about it because we are our future.

  • Caitlyn and Ameilia

  • Fianaith age 8

    I think this is so important and I am glad our countries are coming together to make a better world!

  • Joe Biden

    Jeff bezosssss doesn’t give a damn about climate change he just launched a rocket into space and he flys his private jet everywhere and not 1 of his Amazon trucks are electric if he has so much money the least he could do is make his own company use clean energy by making his Amazon vehicles electric.

  • Darcie

    Jeff bezo is very hypocritical in his speech he moans about climate change but he went to to space

  • Zaid hajothman

    Why are all the world leaders Always gathering up about world problems it would make more sense if scientists with degrees met up

  • Hi

    Jeff bezos is a hypocrite. He says we should look after the environment yet he has hundreds of thousands of Amazon drivers polluting the air. Good luck with COP 26

  • MissA

    Thanks for explaining what COP26 is about.

  • Carys

    We need to take action quickly! There isn’t any time to wait around and let someone else do something if we want change we need to do something. COP 26 is such a good idea to bring countries around the world to make a change but instead of just talking they need to take action.

  • Mario

    This is extremely helpful!!!! Although these Leaders speeches sound very hypocritical, how many of these leaders took a private jet to Glasgow?

  • Lillia

    COP26 is a very important event that must happen. However we watched Jeff bezos speech and he was very hypocritical. More needs to be done to ensure the next generations are safe!!!

  • Adam

    There should be more awareness to global warming and climate change

  • Let’s GO

  • Evie Broadfoot

    Thanks for the inspiration guys. I will try and share this and talk about climate change with my friends and family.

    I hope that this all goes to plan and the can save the planet

  • Its time for action, we can't wait any longer.

  • William

    Let's turn down our heating and recycle let's not forget we need to stop chopping trees down its for humanity's future!

  • Loreto Convent, Gibraltar

    The eyes of the world are watching!

  • Mackenzie

    This helped me a lot. Thanks for making it

  • lets take a lot of action

  • Dylan Jones

    I think they should allow recycling bins in schools with no extra cost! :D

  • Lily and Harri

    We think we should start saving electricity and use more solar panels and we should save are sea animals by using less water

  • We could make the environment better and stop dropping litter. Litter is going in to the ocean and killing our animals and out world will be a disappointment to our world!

  • Kacey and Romi

    We need to protect our world and the oceans Why should we fix this mess. We hope we see these changes soon.

  • Noa and Chloe

    We think local councils should allow the local bin men to pick up schools plastic and recycling and we should try and save more whater

  • Lexie and Kai

    We should stop using so much water, local councils need to start recycling from schools, stop throwing your rubbish into our oceans, stop polluting our worlds.

  • Alex and Leo

    You should have more bins with shutters on them More soler panels yoos less water

  • Seren Caleb

    Earth need a change I believe in the world to have a great big change

  • Charley / Dylan

    I think we can help our environment by encouraging young kids like us to pick up the plastic they see on our planet.

  • Alix and Bailey

    I think we should start using less plastic and recycle because our world is getting worse every year so we need to start recycling

  • Bluebelle / Louis

    I think we can save the environment by reducing the amount of pollution, electricity and the amount of water is wasted because climate change is a big thing.

  • Arwen and Zac

    I think we should start using more electric cars and solar panels and find more ways to recuse our plastic waste we need to take action

  • Megan summer

    I think we should make a law about littering and that might help climate change.

    I think Boris Johnson should make a limit of how many trees you can cut down.

  • arran

    no more gas produced and more solar panels

  • PurpleMonster102

    I think that on COP25 when Greta gave her sensational speech it changed the world. People need to open their eyes more to climate change, it is more of an issue than everyone makes out.

    In Year 4 Frogs, we have been discussing the importance of Climate Change. We think electric cars should be more affordable and people should be encouraged to walk or cycle instead of driving. We also think we need to stop cutting down trees and we should plant more. We throw away a lot of waste which could be recycled. We need to find alternatives to fossil fuels.

    World leaders should change their mindsets about climate change.Most of them like short-term gain to remain in power because their span in power max 6 to 10 years. They never think about our future generation nor the sustainable world.
