COP26 starts next month!

COP26 starts next month! r1 Peace Brigades International-Canada Making Space for Peace

The United Nations COP26 climate summit will start on October 31 in Glasgow, Scotland.

We will be working with PBI frontline projects in Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, the environmental defenders we accompany there and allies to highlight that the Glasgow Pact must include mechanisms for the protection of defenders.

Since the Paris Agreement was reached at the COP21 summit in December 2015, at least 1,000 land and environmental rights defenders have been killed around the world. On average, that’s a staggering loss of four activists each week over a 5-year period.

You can help amplify our call to the Prime Minister to protect frontline climate defenders by retweeting this message to him.

Please also stay tuned for a webinar we are organizing on COP26 tentatively scheduled for Saturday November 6, which is also a global day of climate action.
