Medium description

The Live at COP26 is a collection of open resource videos that explores the broader context of COP26 and considers other key frameworks such as COP15 (The UN Convention on Biological Diversity) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  We share the then ‘live’ insights into the issues discussed at COP26, as well as responses to the conference themes from children and young people, community groups and ministerial bodies, both nationally and internationally. Using these ‘starting points’, learners were invited to reflect on what they heard, watched and read and think about what these conversations and issues mean to them.

These videos was designed for anyone with an interest in sustainability – and that should be all of us! You may find the resource particularly useful if you are involved in education at any level. There has never been a more urgent need for the world to work together and take collaborative action to secure a sustainable future for people and planet.  These videos remains a great resource for those who are looking for ideas and inspiration to help us all take our next steps beyond the conference. 

These videos are free open resources, originally created for the short online course Learning for a Sustainable Future: Live at COP26, which ran in parallel with the COP26 conference in November 2021. The course is no longer running but you can still work through the content in your own time using the videos in this open resource.
