The United Nations climate change COP26 conference is an international event being held in Glasgow with over 25,000 representatives from 200 countries attending over the 12-day event. It will work to prevent global temperatures rising above 1.5C and protect our planet and people from the impacts of climate change to avoid what the UN calls a ‘climate catastrophe’ by 2100.
Boris Johnson started the conference with an opening speech to officially launch the conference in Glasgow, co-hosted by Italy. World Leaders and climate activists all stood at the podium including Prince Charles and Sir David Attenborough to open the conference and give wise words on the situation to more than 120 summit leaders and that we must act fast. Sir David stated,‘If working apart we are a force powerful enough to destabilise our planet, surely working together we are powerful enough to save it.’ Prince Charles warned that ‘time has quite literally run out.’
