What is COP26?

The word 'COP' stands for 'Conference of the Parties'. The COP brings governments from all over the world together once a year to discuss how to jointly tackle climate change and air pollution. The conferences are attended by world leaders, ministers, international organisations and the media.

COP26 is the 26th climate change COP and is being hosted in the UK (in partnership with Italy) from October 31st 2021 to November 12th 2021.

We here at Active Together believe that one of the ways we can help tackle climate change and reduce carbon emissions is through active travel. Members of the public in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland can make a big difference by making their journeys to work, the shops, school or social events an active one.

As well as helping the planet, active travel is fantastic for your physical and mental health! Find out more here.
