With students dialling in virtually from classrooms across the UK, you will find out more about the real-life research projects relating to climate and biodiversity issues that they are undertaking through our Tomorrow’s climate scientists programme.

You will also get a chance to discover more about our other opportunities and resources that support teachers and engage students in the important discussions around climate change and biodiversity. 

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 Tomorrow’s climate scientists

Tomorrow’s climate scientists aims to give students the opportunity to take action against issues surrounding climate change and biodiversity loss, by empowering them to undertake their own real-life research into these and the possible solutions. The programme is an extension to the Society’s Partnership Grants scheme, which funds schools to run investigate STEM research projects in partnership with a STEM professional from academia or industry.  

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.
