Further details

The British Council is leading a global programme ahead of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021 to support the UK Government’s COP26 objectives.

These are to create a ‘whole of society’ COP26, to build the political environment for effective negotiations, and to raise domestic and international ambitions to reach net zero carbon emissions.

The British Council is supporting 26 scholarships for COP26, with the aim of raising awareness amongst young people of the importance of green jobs and nurturing talent for the green industries.
