Join the Climate Change Initiative live from COP26 as we share our perspectives and answer your questions about the first week of the global climate summit in Glasgow.

About this event

The UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative sends its first delegation to the UN climate negotiations, COP26, in Glasgow Scotland. Join us as we report back on what we are seeing and learning at the global summit live from Glasgow. We’ll answer your questions, including:

  • What is the history of the UN Climate Negotiations and COP26 in particular?
  • What are the goals of COP26?
  • What is the ‘IPCC’ (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’) and how does it fit into COP26?
  • What’s it like to participate in a ‘COP’ (Conference of Parties to the UN climate treaty)?
  • What are we learning about how other universities and cities are working to address climate change around the world?
  • How are we sharing our own work with others around the world?

Have another question? Submit it here by November 3, 2021.

Be sure to also register for the live report back on week two, Friday, Nov. 12 @12pm ET/4 pm GMT and the post-COP26 Discussion Panel on UML’s campus Thursday, Nov. 18, 4-5 pm ET.
