COP26 is rapidly approaching in Glasgow. At these talks, governments from across the world will meet to discuss climate change. But outside of the government talks, there are great ways to get involved, learn something new, make your voice heard and make new connections with activists and communities from across the world.



SCCS and the COP26 Coalition are looking for people to volunteer at COP26 between 31st Oct – 14th Nov 2021.

There are a few different ways you can volunteer:

  • Volunteer in person at events in Glasgow
  • Volunteer remotely at the Virtual People’s Summit
  • Volunteer at their Arts Hub

Find out more and apply today.


Get along to events

There are a large number of fantastic free public events taking place in person and online during COP26. You can find all of the events on Green Zone or Climate Fringe.

Many events will be live streamed for those who cannot make them.

Make your voice heard

There will be a Global Day of Action on 6th November 2021. This will include a People’s March through the city of Glasgow. Find out more.

This year, COVID-19 will present additional challenges to people from across the world travelling to these discussions and events. Therefore it is vital that voices from refugee and migrant communities living in Scotland are heard.

Migrant-led groups across Scotland, led by MORE, are mobilising and building a migrant justice bloc at this march to represent people affected by migrant and racial injustice and climate injustice in Glasgow and across the world. You can find out more about how to get involved here.

For young people, the Scottish Youth Climate Summit is now open for registrations. This will take place on Saturday 30th October, 9:30 – 17:00 Saturday 30th October, 9:30 – 17:00. Register here.
