To ensure members receive the adequate support and guidance ahead of this milestone event, we are glad to be launching today (28th September 2021) the EAUC-led Countdown to COP26 Campaign.
The COP26 summit (31 October – 12 November 2021) will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. This is an incredible opportunity for the Further and Higher Education sector to showcase the range of projects and initiatives that enable institutional climate and sustainability performance.
