The University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center: Making Sense of the COP26 Climate Talks – Reporting Back from the Field
Climate Generation empowers individuals and communities to engage in solutions to climate change.
They are sending a delegation to the United Nations 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland this November to bring the international climate negotiations to a larger audience. This year’s delegation represents professionals who 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.
Two members of the delegation will report back on the proceedings to share what they learned, what it means, and how all community members can engage in climate action.
