OMS Panel Discussion: “Towards COP27: moving forwards after COP26”

Event date: January 27, 2022

At the end of 2021, the world looked with great expectation towards Glasgow for the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference, COP26.

Attended by Heads of States, academics, activists, policy makers and journalists, COP26 was the largest COP to date, with perspectives on its merits and failures varying wildly. Now that the dust has settled, we present the key outcomes from the conference, assess how close they bring us to keeping the limit of 1.5C within reach, and explore what those decisions mean for those affected by and implementing them. Further, with COP27 on the horizon, we also ask what role COPs might take post-Glasgow, and how they might adapt to more inclusively and effectively tackle the task.

Join us as our panel of academics share their thoughts after attending COP26 and look forward to what it means for COP27 and the world over the coming years.

Thursday 27 January 2022, 5.00-6.30pm GMT

Panel:

  • Professor Myles Allen, Director, Oxford Net Zero
  • Dr Cécile Girardin, Technical Director, Nature Based Solutions Initiative
