With COP26 concluded, explore what has been its legacy and the next steps for accelerating climate action.
Join us for our last #FoodTalks of the year. This will be held online via Zoom.
Our #FoodTalks series is now in its seventh year. This year we’re particularly focusing on food systems and the climate emergency.
COP26 has been and gone, but:
- What is its legacy?
- What hopes and concerns do young people have for the process and the outcomes of COP26?
- How can we go beyond the Glasgow agreements to accelerate climate action?
- How can we all ensure that young people’s voices are heard and listened to?
- How can we get food and farming concerns front and centre in the future?
- What can we as food citizens do to promote urgent and radical change?
Hear insights from our expert speakers and share your own questions and views. Our full speaker line-up will be announced soon, but it includes:
Kim Allen, a youth advocate from Papua New Guinea, and a member of the Pacific Island Forum Secretary General’s Young Climate Leaders Alliance.
Dev Sharma, a youth advocate from Leicester. He is Bite Back Co-Chair Youth Board, Youth MP for Leicestershire & Ambassador for the Food Foundation.
Cherop Soy, an ecowarrior living in Kenya, part of SOS UK and campaign coordinator for Mock COP26. She runs the blog www.ecowarriorkenya.com.
