I am super excited! I have been offered an opportunity to attend and participate (credentialled NGO Observer) in the 2021 United Nations COP26 meeting. This international climate change meeting is THE place where climate policy and climate action happen. I will be supporting the U.S. ACE Coalition (Action for Climate Enhancement) while participating in events in Glasgow, Scotland during the first two weeks of November.
I believe that in order to solve the climate crisis we must activate PEOPLE through education, training, and public participation. I will join a delegation of individuals and organizations working on community driven climate solutions including climate change education, training, public awareness, public access to information, public engagement, and international coordination at COP26.
The U.S. ACE Coalition Delegation to COP26 will build on the U.S. ACE Framework and other previous U.S. ACE community work to advocate for stronger, more just, and more intersectional ACE work at the national and international level. The Delegation will host side events, press conferences, and networking events at COP26 to feature ACE work in the U.S. and promote ACE as critical to climate solutions.
This huge learning opportunity will allow me to meet inspiring international leaders from around the world who are fighting for systems change in climate change education and a for a future we all want to be part of.
I will also get to share my unique perspective, expertise, leadership, and passion for climate change education. It's plausible that this experience will turbocharge my passion for environmental work and career in environmental education.
While in Glasgow, I will also meet up and engage with the World Association for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Climate Change Programme leaders and hopefully the Laudato Sí Movement too.
This is all a very last minute opportunity that has come my way and yet it does not include funding to cover my travel, expenses, and carbon offsets for two weeks ($3,000 budget). I thank you for considering sponsoring me and this important work. You may send along a sponsorship of any size through PayPal.Me or Venmo @sarahrosejohnson.
Thank you in advance for your continued support of climate change education leadership!
