There is a lot of pressure as the UK prepares to host COP26.

The summit is expected to accelerate the goals set in the Paris Climate Agreement and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and make significant progress. This will include achieving zero emissions by 2050 and keeping global temperature rise below 2 degrees.

Who will be there?

Former Business Minister Alok Sharma is the president and the other host of the event is Italy.

It will feature high-profile international leaders and renowned climate activists, including such well-known names as Greta Thunberg and Sir David Attenborough. In addition, tens of thousands of meeting rooms, officials and executives of the company.

Euronews spoke with Bertrand Piccard, president of the Solar Impulse Foundation, and has advice for leaders ahead of the summit:

“They need to understand that the more their countries gain in fighting climate change, the more steps they can take to do so. If we have had a problem in the past, it will end in failure if we can show each country what they can benefit from fighting climate change and the environment. COP26 can be a huge success.”

The main partner of COP26 is Titanium Technology, Hitachi. The company’s European head, Alistair Dormer, told Euronews he wanted to see lasting results:

94-year-old climate entrepreneur Des Karen from Caren Meicnic Teo believes in youth:

“People have all the power in their hands. If they just took it, they would act quickly, because we are all responsible for maintaining and improving the wonderful world that we have inherited, but at least preserving this wonderful world that we have inherited.”
