Season for Ex-Change Two
6 Months to COP26: An Alternative Briefing
Hosted by presenter Chanté Joseph, this session includes a series of presentations on topics you might not see at Glasgow’s upcoming talks.
We’re six months away from Glasgow hosting the UN’s COP26 talks on climate change. What sort of topics should be on the agenda? This session is an opportunity for topics and perspectives that might not make it to the main table, but are valuable and dynamic contributions to the climate justice movement.
This event will be hosted by Chanté Joseph and features contributions from Angela Chan, Harpreet Kaur Paul and Adam Corner.
