Image for COP26 at GFT

COP26 is the 2021 United Nations climate change conference, taking place in Glasgow from 1-12 November.

For nearly three decades the UN has been bringing together almost every country on earth for global climate summits called COPs, which stands for ‘Conference of the Parties’. In that time, climate change has gone from being a fringe issue to a global priority.

This year will be the 26th annual summit – giving it the name COP26. With the UK as President, COP26 takes place in Glasgow.

In the lead-up to and during COP26, we at GFT will be screening a number of films and events to help audiences engage with the issues that the conference aims to wrestle with.

See below for details of screenings announced so far, and keep an eye on this page for more.
