In November, governments from across the world will gather in Glasgow to discuss how to tackle the climate emergency at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26).


The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. British Marine will be represented at COP26 by Maritime UK, which has partnered with City of Glasgow College to showcase green technology, innovation and capabilities from across the UK maritime sector to the world, at an International Maritime Hub.


To be hosted at City of Glasgow College’s Riverside Campus on the bank of the river Clyde, the Hub will be the location for a number of different events throughout the duration of the international conference, highlighting UK maritime expertise within areas such as technology, policy, regulation, education and training.


The International Maritime Hub runs from 1-12 November.
