Climate Change: COP26 and Beyond

COP26 may have concluded, but the conversation on climate change has never been more urgent or important. We therefore invite all staff, students, and members of our wider Hertfordshire community to join us at our College Lane Campus for a free conference to explore the causes, implications and considerations of climate change in the wake of COP26.

The conference spans three days (19 November, 26 November and 3 December) and will include insights and perspectives from academic, policy, commercial, and activist speakers on the solutions, challenges and opportunities associated with the demands of a sustainable future. You can join us for all 3 days, or just specific sessions of your choice via the link below.

If you have any questions about the conference, contact our Sustainability team.

Day 1 – Race to zero, the global and local perspective plus legal, political, social and scientific considerations

Day 2 – Sustainable energy, food and transport

Day 3 – The role of activism, green education and the younger generation in tackling climate change

Our conference venue is mechanically ventilated and currently operating at 75% of normal capacity. While the Government have removed all legal obligations for face coverings, they are still strongly recommending their use in busy public spaces. As such, we would encourage all our attendees to use a face covering when moving around the University, including in the conference venue.
