HSPH Beyond COP26: Next steps in the fight against climate change

World leaders are convening in Glasgow for COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference. And warning alarms are ringing—loudly.

Scientists, health leaders, and politicians have described COP26 as our last, best chance to slow global warming and stave off some of the worst health effects of climate change. But the political environment remains fraught. And it’s unclear how rhetoric will translate into action.

On November 18 at 12pm ET, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health expert panel brings together leading voices in the fight against climate change, fresh from the halls of the COP26 Summit. They’ll talk through key outcomes and next steps—for nations, institutions, and individuals.
