The COP26 University Network comprises over 55 UK-based universities working to raise ambition and awareness about the COP26 Climate Change Conference. The Network aims to ensure the UK academic sector gets everyone on track to deliver a low-carbon, sustainable world by opening public access to evidence, widening the network of academics for COP26 in the government/NGOs and other actors, and by involving the university itself in such initiatives.
