With international cooperation crucial to achieving net zero targets, C40 Cities and Arup today announce that they will together host a COP26 Green Zone exhibition showcasing climate action being taken by a range of global cities.
This exhibition will run in the Green Zone at COP26 in Glasgow from 1-12 November 2021. The full exhibition will also be accessible virtually via an interactive digital platform.
A virtual showcase of city-led climate action initiatives
The Global Cities Climate Action Exhibition will comprise a series of ‘virtual rooms’, with a room for each represented city allowing visitors to discover examples of on-the-ground climate action that are having tangible positive climate impacts in each city.
The virtual aspect of the exhibition will be hosted using Virtual Engage, a web-based digital platform that provides an accessible and interactive environment for the public to access the exhibition from any location at any time.
Arup and C40 Cities are curating a speaker programme to accompany the exhibition, leveraging the space as a focal point and platform for mayors and city leaders from the participating cities who are attending COP26 to convene and present their city’s climate action plans to conference attendees.
