Peace Boat Participates in the United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP26 for Climate Action – Nov 1-12

In solidarity with those on the front line of the climate crisis, Peace Boat will participate in COP26, the upcoming annual United Nations Climate Change conference to be held in Glasgow, Scotland from November 1-12, 2021. COP26 will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

“Thousands of government delegates and people from civil society, business and the media will gather at COP 26 to advance climate action. The world will be watching and demanding that national leaders rise to the moment, given the mounting climate crisis and far-reaching consequences for a livable future” – United Nations

Peace Boat and Ecoship will participate in this year’s conference, partnering with other civil society organizations to call for increased ambition on climate action, participating in events in the UNFCCC administered Blue Zone, in public areas of the city of Glasgow, and virtually with a booth at the COP26 Virtual Ocean Pavillion.
