What outcomes do we need to see at this year's United Nations climate talks (COP26) that haven't happened in previous years? 
Join us for the Cabot Institute for the Environment's prestigious Annual Lecture where we will discover the different perspectives and analyses of our speakers. From youth and justice, to journalism and government, we will hear what they think we should be looking out for and paying attention to at this year's event and what we really need to see happen.

Joining us will be:

  • Mya-Rose Craig (Birdgirl), 19 year old British-Bangladeshi founder and President Black2Nature, naturalist, environmentalist, climate and race activist
  • Journalist Leo Hickman, Director and Editor of Carbon Brief;
  • Alyssa Gilbert, Director of Policy and Translation at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment and chair of the COP26 Universities Network.
  • Cabot Institute Associate Director and University of Bristol lead on COP26, Professor Paul Bates CBE FRS, will be chairing the event.
