The next UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, is being held in Glasgow at the beginning of November. This is an opportunity for action. Not just for the countries and delegates attending. But for all of us to challenge what we, and what the construction industry, can do.
Starting in Cornwall on 6th September and ending in Glasgow on 29th October, each of our offices across England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland will host a week of provocation and inspiration in collaboration with local organisations.
The event programme seeks to drive knowledge exchange, best practice and positive action on the climate emergency. We invite you to join us, and our expert guest speakers, as we explore how we all can make a difference, through discussion, debate and physical acts.
With COP26 in November it feels like we are at a fork in the road. The recent global floods and fires have brought home the devastating effects of climate change with only minor temperature rises. We can either continue down this trajectory, with even worse consequences, or we can act, now. This is what the Climate Action Relay is about, exploring how we seize this opportunity.
