Prepare yourself for COP26
As if the sense of urgency wasn’t enough when COP26 was postponed from 2020 to 2021, just as the world was about to mobilise for the last decade towards 2030. And as if the summer of 2021 didn’t tell us clearly enough what climate change means, in terms of extreme weather and disrupted ecosystems. But on top of this, the IPCC published a report in early August, concluding that previous analyses and warnings had not fully understood the severity of the situation.
It’s easy to resign with a feeling of pointlessness. At the same time difficult to live without a sense of meaning. Therefore, we believe it is more important than ever, to make sense of what is going on, the actions being taken and how we all can do our share of this majestic challenge. We believe everyone has an obligation to get informed, to know what’s at stake in all the decisions that need to be made at the top level and down. At the grassroots level and up.
In a series of 9 Bridge Talks to COP26, Mattias Goldmann, along with a number of pioneering companies, will help us understand how the global climate numbers break down and affect each of the major emission areas. To make sense of the actual COP proceedings we will even help you get ready to follow them to understand the achievements and disappointments. We want you to be able to retell the stories of how you all can make a difference, to your colleagues, your fellow citizens and to your family at the breakfast table. There is still time to act and do things right. But there’s no more time for yet another snooze.
