The road to COP26

BY spectator events


June 28, 2021

9:00 am




The UK is set to host the United Nations Climate Change Conference in November. The talks will bring together thousands of delegates including heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change. But is Britain – and indeed the rest of the world – ready to make the changes a green agenda could require? Is green technology able to sustain our energy demands? And as we recover from the pandemic, is the UK’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 realistic?

Join Spectator journalists, politicians and industry experts, as our summit sets the agenda ahead of COP26. Registration is free and open to all.
