COP26 - Day 4

November 4, 2021

LISTEN ALSO Day 12 update to hear more about Hydrogen. Hydrogen from natural gas only works if carbon left from the process is stored. Very expensive and not green as advertised by the Mitshibushi man. 

A 12 day conference with diplomatic negotiations, a blue zone (for ‘parties’ and ‘party overflows’) and a green zone (for the general public) and many side events all over the city; attended by around 30,000 people. 

A lot of work goes into preparing for a COP – not just the physical structures but also ideas, conversations and agreements. And the work continues after. 

It is important to establish “the mood music” as Jill puts it, so all the work before, during and after, delivers what we need. 

Ece and Jill are up in Glasgow for COP26. They will do daily summaries – supported by Sabine, Neil and Anna back at the HQ. If they manage to find each other in the chaos they may even upload a chat. Listen out for their summaries in the evening.

See below for follow up references and background information we mention in the updates.

Ece attended a meeting of hearts and minds in a circle held by Kosha Anja Joubert, CEO of the Pocket Project in the stand hosted by Institute of Advance Sustainability Studies 

Met with Derin Altan for 40 seconds after meeting him at a seminar on Net Zero for Bozcaada. Derin is one half of Esmiyor (means ‘no breeze’ in Turkish) – a climate change news and discussions platform and podcast
