The United Nations Climate Summit (COP26) has come to a close in Glasgow after two weeks of high profile meetings and announcements. As the climate emergency becomes harder for world leaders to ignore, these meetings' inability to create binding agreements that seriously address the urgency of the crisis becomes more striking and more shameful.
Nowhere is this more blatant than with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. At COP26, the government of Canada made new promises to curb coal exports and stop financing foreign fossil fuel projects. However, Canada's Climate Action Tracker overall rating remains “Highly Insufficient.” Canada does not have sufficient policies in place to meet its updated domestic targets and urgently needs to adopt further measures.
The fact also remains that the government of Canada has missed every single climate target it has ever made. Its continues to push for the TMX and CGL pipelines, making it impossible to meet any new climate targets, or commitments to respect the rights of Indigenous Nations.
So, if COP26 was, as Greta Thunberg said, a “two-week-long celebration of business as usual and blah, blah, blah” - what do we need to do to organize a mass popular, effective, and meaningful response to the international climate crisis?
Join Climate Convergence and organizers from around the world as we discuss these urgent issues at a time of unprecedented crisis and mobilization.
This event takes place on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the s?lil?w?ta?? (Tsleil-Waututh), Sk?wx?wú7mesh (Squamish), and x?m?θk??y??m (Musqueam) Nations.
