16th March 2021 – Delighted to support tonight’s event led by UN House Scotland building commitment to and action on the Paris Agreement.
This event, organized by Aberdeen branch of the United Nations Association, is a panel discussion that explains and publicizes a project starting later in the year organized by United Nation Association Scotland entitled “From Paris to COP26” with the description:
“The project entails the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement with as many individuals, local councils, organizations, and private enterprises as possible, facilitated by a series of events starting and ending with two high-profile ceremonies over a period of several months/weeks.
This initiative’s goal is to engage with leaders and individuals from all sectors to actually focus on the Achievement of the Paris Climate Agreement and their latest commitments set out at the Climate Ambitions Summit, hosted by the UN and the UK government in December 2020. The purpose of the project is to create synergy and build on the agreement of world leaders, and to identify and disseminate helpful toolkits and guides for implementation to achieve the goal.”
