The penny drops

Why is COP26 so important?

November 1, 2021

The action taken on climate change over the next decade will radically shape the health of the planet for generations. COP26, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties happening in Glasgow in November 2021, aims to help us rise to that challenge together. On this episode Andrea Fox is joined by Kaisie Rayner, Climate Change Lead at Royal London, who tells us all about COP26, why it’s such a crucial event for climate change and what it’s got to do with finance.
