Urge the Prime Minister to put people hardest hit at the heart of COP26 climate talks

This year, the UK will host the largest gathering of world leaders ever to take place on British soil: the ‘COP26’ climate talks.

As Prime Minister, Boris Johnson must push world leaders to show the ambition we need to keep temperature rises below the disastrous 1.5-degree threshold. This means that all countries must play their part. Wealthy nations, who bear the greatest responsibility for the crisis, need to step up.  

With the eyes of the world on the UK, we must urge the Prime Minister to make sure communities hardest hit by the climate emergency are listened to at COP26.

Dear Prime Minister, 

COP26 will be one of the most important summits of the century. The conference must put us on track to end a climate emergency which is having a devastating impact on the world and hitting poorest communities the hardest. 

As host to this crucial meeting, we urge you to make sure world leaders show the ambition needed to stop temperatures rising beyond a disastrous 1.5 degrees, with each country committing to do its fair share. 

And we urge you to put the people worst affected by the crisis – those who have done least to contribute to the problem – at the heart of the talks.
