Event Details

Dates: 5 - 6 November 2021

Location: Hybrid

Due to the ongoing travel restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this will be a hybrid event. The Legislators' Summit will be held at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, but Parliamentarians and external stakeholders will also be able to attend the event virtually.

Host: GLOBE International and the Scottish Parliament

 

Overview

Since the inception of the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COPs) almost 30 years ago, GLOBE International has hosted a legislators' summit to coincide with the Conference.

This year, ahead of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, the CPA has partnered with GLOBE and other international partners to facilitate the engagement of parliamentary networks and Parliamentarians at the Conference.

The UNFCCC Parliamentary Group, led by GLOBE International, will provide administrative, information and coordination support to engage cross-party legislators at UNFCCC meetings and COPs. 

Delegates representing the members of the UNFCCC Parliamentary Group will attend the GLOBE COP26 Legislators' Summit, which will convene cross-party legislators to share innovations and best practice on climate action.

 

How to register

Parliamentarians from CPA Member Branches are encouraged to attend the Summit virtually. There is no limit on the number of virtual attendees who can attend the event.

To register for the Summit, visit the GLOBE website. If you are attending from a CPA Member Branch, please note your membership of the CPA on the registration form. Notifying GLOBE that you are a CPA Member will allow you to pose questions during the summit and participate actively in other ways.

CPA Members who plan to attend virtually, or have any questions about the Summit, should contact Jack Hardcastle, Programmes Manager, jack.hardcastle@cpahq.org
