COP26: The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties will take place in Glasgow (UK). World Leaders from governments around the world will meet to discuss climate action and the future of our shared Earth. Dates: October 31 – November 12 2021

Diego Arreola Fernandez

I want them to truly listen to our concerns, to build upon them and create immediate change, take immediate action to fight climate change, and use their power for good once and for all.

Heather Brockbank

I want the leaders to address climate change issues everywhere, but especially in developing countries where people may not have access to proper means of repatriation in instances of climate disasters they did not cause, but which costs them their livelihoods and eventually their lives.

Chanté Davis

Invite more youth from diverse backgrounds and experiences to hold leadership positions.

Dejea Lyons

I hope they target deforestation. I personally feel like trees are the backbone of life and by getting rid of trees we get rid of potential oxygen and habitats.

Oluwaseyi Moejoh

I want the leaders at COP 26 to also prioritize the intersection between plastic pollution and climate change and make an agreement or treaty to discontinue the production of unnecessary problematic single-use plastics. I believe this will go a long way to combat plastic pollution and climate change.

Hannah Testa

Implementation: Not just talking about solutions, but executing them now (not set far into the future).
