The COP26 Coalition is a UK-based civil society coalition of groups and individuals organising towards mobilising around climate justice during COP26. Coalition members include environment and development NGOs, trade unions, grassroots community campaigns, faith groups, youth groups, migrant and racial justice networks.
It aims to:
- Organise around the COP in a transformative, climate justice-centred way, creating space for hope and being inclusive and accountable to the breadth of UK and Scottish civil society and international climate movements;
- Use the COP as a moment to strengthen the Scottish, UK and International climate justice movement to build power for system change – this is not about 2 weeks in November 2021 – it’s about a year of building up to and the legacy of the COP for the movement;
- Enable civil society to use the COP as leverage to make gains at the domestic level that advance climate justice, and ensure best outcome possible from the COP itself.
Action in Glasgow
Outside the COP26 negotiations taking place at the Scottish Exhibition Centre in Glasgow from the 1st – 11th November, the COP26 Coalition is organising an array of activities to demand climate justice.
There are a number of local hubs, including one in the West Midlands. They are all listed here.
