COP26 Coalition – The People’s Summit for Climate Justice 7-10th Nov  The decisions made at COP26 will shape how governments respond (or not) to the climate crisis. But justice won’t be handed to us by world leaders or delivered by corporations. Only we can imagine and build the future that works for all of us. The solutions that we need already exist and are being practiced, but governments lack the political will to act. Indigenous and frontline communities have known the solutions for centuries.
