COP26 is held in Glasgow, UK, just after the G20 in Rome (Italy). Environmental activists are calling the climate summit a last-ditch meeting on environmental issues. In the Scottish capital, it is time for final preparations.

The city of Glasgow in Scotland is set to host COP26. It is starting from this Sunday, October 31, so tight security arrangements have been made in the city. Across the city, signs recall the climate issues of this summit. The two-week conference raises expectations and expectations. “I’m very proud that COP26 is taking place in Scotland,” smiles one resident. Another said, “I don’t believe the elites gathered here will produce a tangible result.”

Six years after the Paris Agreement, this is a new important climate summit. COP26 president Alok Sharma told US television, “I want more from each country. Progress has been made in recent years, but the work we have here is even heavier than Paris.” Youth activists have been demonstrating in Glasgow and London for days to increase pressure on world leaders. Activists in France are also worried. “I’m afraid of passivity,” remarked one of them. Greta Thunberg arrived in Glasgow this Saturday, 30 October. It intends to influence the discussions during this COP26.
