Join us for a series of expert-led online panel discussions exploring topics such as renewable energy, transport, climate change and net-zero.

Cop26: Sustainability Futures is a series of four online interactive panel discussions being delivered by the University of Aberdeen to coincide with Cop26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

Each session is based on a specific theme of Cop26 and brings together experts from academia and industry to discuss how research in climate change, sustainability and energy transition can help deliver on the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
