COP 26

As the University for the Common Good, GCU is at the frontline of tackling climate change through our cutting edge research and education, supporting communities internationally, in Scotland, and in the rest of the UK.  

With world leaders attending the United Nation’s COP26 summit in Glasgow from 31 October - 12 November to agree the action they will take to tackle climate change, this could be the world’s best last chance to get the problem under control.

Tackling climate change for the Common Good

You can be assured, GCU is driving change in the areas COP26 will focus on: helping communities adapt and become more resilient to climate change, creating nature-based solutions, implementing a just energy transition, providing clean road transport and delivering climate finance.

We are proud to be part of the COP26 Universities Network working together to promote a zero carbon, resilient future.

Everyone across society – political leaders, businesses, local councils, educational institutions, grassroots community groups, students, teachers, workers and individuals – has a role to play in overcoming the climate emergency we face.

We can accomplish great things, if we work together for the Common Good.
