In November 2021 the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. Earlier in 2021, in October, China will play host the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) in Kunming.
To celebrate these two landmark events VisitBritain will be publishing a series of articles and stories showcasing Green and sustainable tourism in the UK, under the banner ‘The Road to COP26’.
At VisitBritain, we want to show global travellers that when international travel is open again, they can visit stunning, exciting and innovative world class tourism attractions, while making socially and environmentally responsible decisions.
Limiting our impact on the planet by choosing Green and sustainable travel attractions is becoming more and more important to consumers, especially in younger demographics and we want to help empower them to be able to make these positive choices!
26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26)
This will be the biggest summit the UK has ever hosted and is expected to be the most significant climate event since the 2015 Paris Agreement. Presidents and Prime Ministers from around the world will attend and will aim to make radical decisions on how to cut carbon emissions.
15th UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15)
COP15 will convene governments from around the world to agree a new set of goals for nature, aiming to bring about a transformation in society’s relationship with biodiversity. Collaboration between the UK and China will play a key part in the success of both of these UN conferences.
