Relay to COP26
We are planning a relay to COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference happening in Glasgow later this year. The relay will take place between June and November 2021. We're still in the preliminary planning stages, and we'd love your help!
this is a moment to rise to.
We are running this Relay to COP26 because we believe that this is a moment to rise to. We commit to remembering and witnessing the injustice of decisions at COP26, even as we also stand alongside our brothers and sisters around the world who hold onto the hope of Christ who saves. Out of the love of Christ we have known, we choose to mark this moment of decision and opportunity by turning the resources we have into a call for action.
We've started planning our route, and we're in touch with other groups and organisations who are planning on taking action ahead of COP26

COP refers to the decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. At the summit, delegates including heads of state, climate experts and negotiators will come together to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change. As well as the negotiations, there will also be space for countries, international organisations and other delegates to showcase climate action, highlight diverse climate change issues and share knowledge.
