Quick Climate Links: A message from Uganda to COP-26 in Glasgow

Quick Climate Links: A message from Uganda to COP-26 in Glasgow

Vanessa Nakate (pictured on the cover of Time magazine) is another calling for action on climate change. Her story can be found at "Vanessa Nakate Wants Climate Justice for Africa".

Yes, we are all invited to the big party,  the "Conference of the Parties" in Glasgow.

Business Green is deeply involved and you can read about that here: "Net Zero Festival: Alex Steffen on why the climate crisis isn't taken seriously enough".

Simon Holmes à Court is eager to see more independents in Australia's Federal Government and that idea is discussed in The Sydney Morning Herald podcast: "Simon Holmes à Court: ‘If it works, the payoff will be enormous".

Also calling for action is the "Youth for the Pacific".

Christiana Figueres played a key role in bringing success to the Paris COP event and has been heavily involved with the organization, "Global Optimism".
