Our Climate Our Future

We’ve partnered with other leading conservation organisations and Twinkl to create a suite of FREE curriculum-linked resources that will enable schools to seize this historic moment and take local climate action

COP26: Teacher Resource Pack

26th Conference of the Parties (COP26)

In November 2021 the UK Government will host the UN Climate Change Conference – also known as COP26 – in Glasgow. This promises to be an historic moment that will define the course of political action to address climate change in the UK and around the globe.

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for your students to witness, understand and engage with the usually remote global political systems that will set the course of their future.
