CoP 26 and MASTS

In November 2021 the delayed and critical UN CoP26 climate negotiations took place in Glasgow. MASTS share the ambition with so many others that this should be a turning point for transformative action at the global, national and local levels, and that these responsibilities are not just on the shoulders of government and major corporates, but also find synergy with actions from organisations, smaller businesses and citizens.

The conference ran from 1st- 12th November, seeing a series of negotiations and discussions. See the Presidency Programme and themes here. MASTS obtained Observer Status from the UNFCCC for the two weeks and nominated 14 of its members to attend CoP Blue Zone activities, they are listed below.

Since the conference (and some major reflection), the MASTS observers have gathered their insights and experiences of CoP26 in a report linked below and in a short video from our collective post-conference catch up. Check out what we got up to at the conference by seeing our hashtag #MASTSatCOP26.

2021-2030 is also the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, so we seek to extend the momentum from CoP26 to embrace further challenges and opportunities for ocean science to help drive positive outcomes for people and planet
