The organisers of COP26 have said they are looking for help to bring the summit to life

Applications have opened today to help shape the COP26 venue in Glasgow ahead of the crucial climate change talks later this year.

Civil society groups, businesses, trade unions, indigenous groups, and young people have the opportunity to bring climate action to life through fun and lively events, displays and workshops in the areas where many of the world’s leaders will be meeting in November.

This is likely to include demonstrations of virtual reality technology; showcasing innovation helping to tackle global climate change; opportunities for local voices from around the world through culture and arts; and youth groups provided a platform to show the impact they are making.

With demand expected to be high for this unique opportunity, organisations are being encouraged to work together with collaborative proposals wherever possible with a focus on profiling the voices of those most impacted and on the front line of climate change.

COP26 President Alok Sharma said: "COP26 will be the largest summit the UK has ever hosted and this is an exciting opportunity for all of society to be involved. I would encourage those who are interested, to join with us to inspire climate action around the world."

This is part of a wider call for action from individuals, organisations and businesses to get involved in committing to and inspiring others to act on climate change in the run-up to COP26 through the Together for Our Planet campaign.
