Following its own two-day Climate Change Conference last week, The Highland Council’s focus now shifts to participating in the UN Climate Change Conference – COP26 – in Glasgow, which starts on Sunday.

Chairperson of the council’s Climate Change Working Group and the Environment and Infrastructure Committee, Councillor Trish Robertson, will lead the representation of the Inverness-headquartered local authority.

Her first event will be the official presentation of the Glasgow Food and Climate Declaration on Saturday, November 6, of which the council is a signatory, during Nature Day at COP26.

Joining Councillor Robertson will be Councillor Angela MacLean, also a member of the Council’s Climate Change Working Group, and several members of staff from the Climate Change team with the purpose of networking and attending events, including those taking place in the Green Zone where the public, civil society, Indigenous Peoples, youth groups, charities, academics, artists and businesses can have their voices heard at COP26.
