EVENT: Cancel the debt for climate justice

This November, the world will be watching as the UK hosts COP26 in Glasgow. But there’s a huge issue stopping lower income countries from confronting the climate crisis – debt.

Join us on the eve of the COP26 summit to hear more about how the climate and debt crises are linked, why so many leaders from lower income counties are calling for the climate debt owed to them to be addressed, and what we can do about it.
