Call for submissions: What climate action needs to be addressed at COP26?

Students are invited to submit ideas drawn from their research on what needs to be achieved at the 26th United Nationals Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November.

Shaping climate action is no easy feat – it's going to take an interdisciplinary, inter-generational approach. As a student in the School of Global Affairs, we know you will have loads of research-informed, innovative ideas.

We invite you to submit a blog entry presenting what you think needs to be covered at the upcoming 26th United Nationals Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November if we are to improve the current climate emergency.

Selected entries will be published on the King's website as part of the new Forward Thinking student research hub and promoted across our social channels. It's a great opportunity to share your thoughts about this pressing issue facing the world!

Entries should be 800-1,000 words, including 1-2 subheadings, and where possible, should draw upon the goals set out at the conference. See more details about the format.

Submit your entries to by Friday, 15 October 5pm. We can't wait to share what your work!
