Climate Change Conference
Scottish Event Campus (SEC)
31 October – 12 November 2021


In November 2021, participants and media from nations and territories around the world will arrive in Glasgow for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP26. Following postponement of the conference in 2020 due to COVID-19, COP26 will now run from 31 October – 12 November 2021 at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC).

COP26 was rescheduled by a year to November 2021 to allow time to deliver a successful summit while the world tackles the pandemic. The intent remains to hold the summit in person, whilst putting the health and wellbeing of local communities and delegations at the centre of decisions about how the event will take shape.

COP26 is the latest major event to be hosted in Glasgow, which has a proven track record as a world-class host of global sporting championships, cultural events and conferences. With the support of businesses and residents, we can help ensure the city is safe and ready to welcome visitors.
