COP26 is an international summit under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The United Kingdom will host the meeting, originally planned to take place in Glasgow in November 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it has been postponed to November 2021. To make sure climate justice is front and centre at the COP26 negotiations, COP26 Coalition are organising a People’s Summit, Civil Society Hubs and Mobilisations.
There are a number of roles and shifts available so that anyone interested can get involved:
- Build and break
- Welcome volunteer
- March steward
- Tech support
- Virtual People’s Summit Support
Requirements: COP26 Coalition are looking for volunteers who are over 18 years old. Most roles require you to be in Glasgow during this period, but there are some roles that can be done from outside of Glasgow. You don’t need to have any particular experience or specialist skills for most roles.
