Royal Holloway, University of London hosted a COP26 Forum with events and activities for students, staff and the general public which was held from 1-12 November 2021.
The forum is taking place in support of UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) and will demonstrate how the university’s community is contributing to meeting the challenges posed by climate change and ecological loss, decarbonisation and helping to generate creative engagements and solutions.
The COP26 Forum showcases Royal Holloway’s challenge-led research from the Living Sustainably research theme which addresses the challenges of climate change, biodiversity, food and energy security, infectious disease, inequalities in education, work and participation, political polarisation and resource consumption. Living Sustainably is one of four research themes which aims to build a strength in challenge-led research from the university’s well established research strengths as outlined in Royal Holloway’s three-year strategic plan.
Royal Holloway is a member of the COP26 Universities Network and an accredited observer at COP26, with a number of academics attending the conference.
