The United Nations 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) is set to take place in Glasgow, Scotland in November of 2021.

Climate Generation is sending a delegation to COP26 to bring the international climate negotiations to life. COP26 represents a pivotal moment in time for globally increasing ambition on greenhouse gas reduction. In addition, with the United States officially returning to the Paris Agreement, a strong U.S. presence of support for it is critical.

This year’s delegation represents professionals that support the work of Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE). ACE is a term adopted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to denote work under Article 6 of the Convention (1992) and Article 12 of the Paris Agreement. The overarching goal of ACE is to empower all members of society to engage in climate action, through education, training, public awareness, public participation, public access to information, and international cooperation on these issues. The delegation will learn from and connect with the US ACE Framework and the global PowerClimateAction campaign.

In addition to our COP26 delegates, we are sending two youth delegates to the Conference of Youth (COY16), in collaboration with Outrider Foundation. COY16 occurs in the days before the COP conference, where a global youth statement or a youth policy document will be submitted to the UN Climate Change Conference through the COP Presidency, centering input from youth of all nationalities and backgrounds, including Indigenous and non-country affiliated groups.
