UKSSN is taking over 20 teenagers from 12 UK regions, all from different schools, to Glasgow for COP26 from 4-7 November. Students will be featuring in the blue ministerial and green civil society zones with partners PPL PWR, Ucell and Climate Psychology Alliance, supported by Global Action Plan, the Royal Society of Chemistry Outreach Department and UKSSN member schools. A further 35 UKSSN students from Years 10-13 will be spreading the word about COP in their schools and regions, and involved remotely in online events and communications.
Calling delegates and organisations involved in COP26!
We are still looking for other opportunities so that every one of the UKSSN students - both those in Glasgow and those working remotely - has a memorable experience of this once-in-a-lifetime international climate conference. If you're involved in COP as a delegate or organisation and looking to give a platform to authentic youth voice - particularly if you'll be in Glasgow from 4-7 November - then do get in touch as it would be great to collaborate. We'd also love to meet up with any other youth groups.
Pre-COP student training
Students have been taking part in sessions on energy storage, climate anxiety, sustainable finance and valuing our green space with PPL PWR, UCell, Climate Psychology Alliance and FareShare. They are also leading their own media training session and receiving media interview practice from the Grantham Institute for Climate Change, Imperial College.
Here is a snapshot of the UKSSN schedule for COP26 so far:
