Opinion: Faith, Visionaries and Global Cooperation Wanted at Glasgow
For an NGO observer who has been to 10 of the annual climate COPs (Conference of Parties), following the COP26 Glasgow Conference remotely is a new experience. Close to 30,000 participants were reportedly registered to attend physically or virtually. In the middle of a lasting pandemic and slower-than-expected global economic recovery, this sounds like a surprisingly big crowd. The volume of online blogs and commentaries is also overwhelming compared to the previous COPs in Poland and Spain. Under the rainy grey skies of Glasgow, it seems the tides of enthusiasm to solve climate crisis are high, amid strong winds still tearing continents apart.
