COP26 Poetry

November 18, 2021

From 01 to 12 November, the COP26 Conference in Glasgow meet to discuss Climate Change. Leicestershire County & City Council's Environment & Transport Department are committed to Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2045 and are promoting COP26. COP stands for Conference of the Parties. Parties are the signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) - a treaty agreed in 1994 which has 197 Parties (196 countries and the EU). The 2021 conference, hosted by the UK, together with our partners Italy, in Glasgow between 31st October and 12th November 2021, will be the 26th meeting of the Parties, which is why it's called COP26. 


So, we set a student challenge. to create a book review, poster, book trailer or a poem about climate change based on a fiction or non-fiction book or articles they have read. So, we are thrilled to showcase the below poems.
