About the event
One year ago, the UK hosted the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, where climate justice, energy transition, and local climate action were among the debated topics. This year we are gathering in London during COP27 to take a closer look at local and national challenges and demand more ambitious climate targets, more action and more climate financing.
