COP26 Forum


As the world focuses on the COP26 Global Conference in Glasgow, we are delighted to be organising our own COP26 Forum that aims to showcase the contributions our staff and students are making to climate change mitigation/adaption and sustainability.

The forum will be taking place from Monday 1 November until Friday 12 November, showcasing research, teaching and other initiatives as well as offering a range of events hosted both online and face-to-face. From a student-chaired panel with local councillors debating decarbonisation plans for our local area, to discussions and workshops on literature and climate catastrophe to a world climate summit simulation, there’s a whole range of events and activities for you to get involved in.
