Press Conference with COP26 President Alok Sharma

Sharma will answer questions about the crucial climate summit for CCNow partner journalists.

Join us Tuesday, October 26, at 5 pm London Time, 12 pm Eastern Time, for an online press conference with COP26 president Alok Sharma.

As president of the COP26 summit opening in Glasgow on October 31, Sharma is central to the summit’s mission of preserving a livable climate for humanity. For months, the British MP has been soliciting commitments from the world’s governments to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celcius. Action plans submitted to date, however, fall well short of that goal, nor is it clear how many world leaders or civil society representatives will be able to attend the summit.

Get the latest developments from the man in charge, and press him with your own questions, at this virtual, one-hour press conference. Partner journalists will be able to question president Sharma directly, via Zoom, in a session moderated by CCNow’s executive director, Mark Hertsgaard.

Note: This event is solely for CCNow journalists — you or your newsroom must be a CCNow partner to participate.

RSVP here, we hope to see you there!
