The Climate Fresk is an innovative approach to understanding the scientific basis of climate change. Our vision is to become a leader in climate education and COP26 is the perfect occasion to amplify its outreach. Our shared goal is to spread our tool and connect with policy makers, scientists, students as well as key decision-makers.
Scotland stepped into the spotlight when accepting to host the 26th Conference of Parties.
The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UK is committed to joining forces with civil society, companies and people on the frontline of climate change.
We invite universities to take their place among these actors to inspire climate action ahead of COP26 and unite for a recast in climate education.`
In 1992, countries joined an international treaty, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, as a framework for international cooperation to combat climate change by limiting average global temperature increases and the resulting climate change, and coping with impacts that were, by then, inevitable.Under the agreement every country on earth is treaty-bound to “avoid dangerous climate change”, and find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions globally in an equitable way. COP (Conference of the Parties) are the annual meetings to evaluate the job done and what we still have to do.
We are still the same! We just changed our name ;)
