Kirkcowan – What's Going On?

The 26th Conference of the Peoples (COP26) takes place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November.

COP26 will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

It’s being billed as one of the world’s last chances to address the climate situation and act before it’s too late and the situation is irreversible.

Just this week in our region, it’s fairly obvious that extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and more severe.

We can only hope that significant progress is made at COP26, that achievable goals are set, and that everyone commits to and delivers the action needed.
