ActNowFilm is a COP26 Youth Voices Project
In November 2021, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties in Glasgow – also known as COP26.
The COP26 summit will bring together international government negotiators, decision-makers and policymakers to discuss how they should accelerate action towards stopping climate change.
From small island states to countries with rapidly growing urban areas, representatives from 197 countries are expected to join the summit.
We want to give you, the young people living across the planet, the opportunity to tell these decision-makers, in your own words, why stopping climate change is important to you - the future generations. And everyone’s voice matters.
To do this we are curating a short film compiled of youth voices from around the world that will genuinely outline how climate change is affecting you, what you are campaigning for and what message you would like to tell to climate negotiators at COP26. Working with a student team we will produce the ActNowFilm which will be showcased to the climate negotiators, policymakers, academics, and the public during COP26. Cut-down versions of the ActNowFilm will also be shown at the following events: Global Alliance of Universities on Climate Youth Summit, COP15 on Biodiversity, and, Climate Week NYC.
Katie Parker is a Project Manager who brings her knowledge of sustainability consultancy, in-house sustainability leadership, management consultancy and marketing to the project.
Amy T is Head of Policy Engagement and Communications at the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Bath.
