The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26 started on Sunday 31 October in host city Glasgow. Our Oxford researchers will be right at the heart of the international conversation.
The University is getting involved in COP26 in numerous ways, for example:
Our Guide to COP26 features Benito Müller, a Professor at Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute who supports developing countries during international negotiations.
The final speaker in our COP Conversations series, which the University created as part of COP26, is PhD student Nick Leach, streaming live this Thursday 4 November, 12:45-1:15pm. Nick is part of Oxford’s Environmental Research Doctoral Training Partnership and will be presenting on the attribution of extreme weather events, with time for your questions. You can catch up on all our academics' presentations from the whole series on the Oxford Research website.
Oxford student Luke Hatton, a MEng Engineering student at New College and President of the Oxford Climate Society, has contributed to a new paper, urging policymakers to ensure long-term thinking is embedded into key processes now, to facilitate a just and rapid transition to net zero for 2050 and beyond.
