Drop into the Royal Society’s exhibit at Glasgow Science Centre and join live virtual Q&As with some of the leading scientists on the frontline in the battle against climate change and biodiversity loss.

Explore how science and technology could help save our planet by answering questions like what is a bee’s favourite flower? How do we mine a sustainable future? And how can we track and trace carbon from space?

The Royal Society’s exhibit will be located in the Clyde Suite at Glasgow Science Centre and is part of a larger programme of events and exhibitions in the Green (public) Zone at COP26. See the full programme

About COP26

COP26 is the 2021 United Nations annual climate change conference. COP stands for Conference of the Parties. Parties are the signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) - a treaty agreed in 1994 which has 197 Parties (196 countries and the EU). The 2021 conference, hosted by the UK, together with our partners Italy, in Glasgow, will be the 26th meeting of the Parties, which is why it's called COP26.

United Nations climate change conferences are among the largest international meetings in the world. The negotiations between governments are complex and involve officials from every country in the world as well as representatives from civil society and the global news media.
