About the Event

The event took place from on Thursday 28th October. This year, COP-26 is orientated around the central goal of securing global net-zero by mid-century and keeping 1.5 degrees within reach. Working together is seen as crucial to achieving this target with “collaboration between governments, businesses and civil society” outlined as the necessary approach.

The session highlighted collaborative, multi-partner climate action initiatives from around the world. Participant speakers were from Ireland, Portugal and Columbia. From Ireland, Dingle Peninsula 2030 was highlighted as a multi-stakeholder community-based sustainability initiative. Cascais City Council in Portugal highlighted their collaborative bottom-up approach to sustainable cities. The National University of Columbia in Manizales presented findings on their approach to greening Manizales through research funding and collaboration across the Universities in the area.
