Through the Eyes of Experts: COP26 and Beyond
All eyes will be on Glasgow October 31 – November 12, 2021 for the 26th UN summit on climate change. Will world leaders recommit to a 50% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2030 to slow Earth’s warming? What role can civil society play?
On Monday, October 25th at 3pm Eastern Time join us for a virtual event where we will hear from Scotland’s top ecologist and leading investigative journalists, along with one of the most influential environmentalists in the US, on a way forward for all of us. The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA is proud to partner with Chicago Scots, Openlands and the Scottish Government on this program.
The program is free, registration required. Follow the link below to RSVP.
