Meeting – COP26: How can unions respond to the climate emergency?

Join our next online participatory UCU Left meeting, co-hosted with Campaign Against Climate Change

Monday 18th October, 6.15pm


The COP26 summit will not bring about the radical change necessary to address the climate emergency. It is going to take mass mobilisation to challenge the powerful interests behind the fossil fuel economy and force governments to act.

It is an urgent task and trade unions must play a central role in it.
