The United Kingdom will host the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland on 1-12 November 2021. The summit will bring together over 30,000 delegates from around the world, including heads of states, climate experts, campaigners and others to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.
Ahead of and beyond COP26, the British Council is launching an innovative global programme called ‘The Climate Connection’ under the strands of youth, policy and public engagement to bring together people (with a focus on young people aged 11 to 35) across the world.
Working with leaders, institutions, young people and communities worldwide, we aim to support the success and legacy of COP26 by creating opportunities for cooperation, dialogue and action that address the shared challenges of climate change through arts and culture, education and English language.
With global climate conversations, art and science showcases, university scholarships, funding, research, training opportunities and more, The Climate Connection has something for everyone. Join in to make connections and make a difference. #TheClimateConnection.
In Turkey, we will be part of various projects under the programme. More information will be available on these pages as project delivery progresses.
