With just a year until the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26 – to be held in Glasgow from 1-12 November 2021), join the CEE Bill Alliance and special guests for a 90 minute virtual event about how the CEE Bill is the emergency strategy needed to avert climate and ecological catastrophe.

How can we persuade the Government to adopt the policies in the Bill? What do we need to do to influence the UK Government and other governments ahead of COP26? What role can citizens play in these processes?
