COP 26 – The United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP26 took place in Glasgow, over a 2 week period, earlier this month. This conference is a major milestone in international efforts to combat climate change. This ‘Conference of Parties’ (COP) takes place every year, but every five years the conference is a more significant decision where the world leaders come together to give new national pledges to fight climate change, Glasgow was one such event. The North West Consortium, comprising of Leaders from Lancashire, Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire and Warrington and Cumbria, hosted and attended a number of events at COP 26 Glasgow.

In the lead up to the conference, there was also a national roadshow of activities which took place throughout the Country, with the principal aim to gather local narratives around projects that have been delivered and their impacts, as well as showcasing what individuals and organisations can do now to support Government’s Net Zero ambitions. The North West Consortium delivered a series of events, across the region, to promote, engage and inspire discussion and activity, including two North West  Green Zones, focussing on energy. In addition activities in Lancashire included, the Flagship and Site Visit events as part of the ‘Zero Carbo Tour‘ at Towneley Hall, the Clean Energy Technology Park and Lancaster University, and the collation of Carbon Copy Case studies, which have gathered a vast array of projects delivered from all areas and communities to address the climate crisis across the county.
