Feasta is proud to support the youth climate justice movement by nominating several young activists from Ireland and around the world to be delegates as part of Feasta's accredited observer status at the UNFCCC at the next climate conference (COP26) to be held in early November 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland.
At COP26 in Glasgow we'll be promoting CapGlobalCarbon (CGC), which would deliver meaningful and lasting emissions cuts, and also provide significant support for climate justice. You can find out more about CGC on our newly-updated CapGlobalCarbon website.
High levels of enthusiasm and readiness for change were expressed in the course of this participatory event, with emphasis placed on a need for fundamental economic transformation to bring about greater community empowerment and increase overall societal wellbeing.
