COP26: How to get involved

COP26 is the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference, and we say this time has to be different.

Although we can’t be in the room, the public should get the chance to have their say in setting the agenda. Here at the studio, we’ve curated a list of pledges, petitions, action days and protests to give you a chance to urge real action where it’s required.
