NEIF COP Changing Planet Competition

COP26 takes place this November in Glasgow, hosted by the UK in partnership with Italy. This conference marks 5 years since the Paris Agreement, under which countries committed to work together to limit global warming to below 2°C and aim for 1.5°C as a maximum.

COP26 takes place this November in Glasgow, hosted by the UK in partnership with Italy. This conference marks 5 years since the Paris Agreement, under which countries committed to work together to limit global warming to below 2°C and aim for 1.5°C as a maximum. The Paris agreement set out that every 5 years, countries would return with an update on how their country was reducing their NDCs (Nationally Determined Contributions). This conference will be the first to review those targets since 2015.

Reaching the target of limiting global warming to 2°C is an ever-increasing challenge, and to limit climate change to within this target, a decisive and ambitious action is needed at COP26. This competition will highlight the various concerns the scientific community holds and seek to explain the science behind those concerns in a novel way. These videos will then be highlighted online in advance of the conference, and during the conference in Glasgow in November (a UKRI stand in the Green Zone, either staffed or virtual dependent on the Covid-19 restrictions).

Global climate change is a complex subject, with scientific contributions from a range of disciplines, entries for this competition will aim to take that research, break it down into accessible short videos for the general public, and offer some insight to the solutions. This is a challenge to all researchers, from the UK and abroad, to re-interpret some of the scientific evidence for climate change as a short, informative video clip.
