Buildings across Australia were lit up green last night to mark the opening of the UN Climate Summit known as COP26 in Scotland.
Yagan Square in Perth, The National Carillon, Telstra Tower, and the British High Commission in Canberra, The British Consulate in Sydney (Gateway Building) and Town Hall Sydney, and Melbourne Town Hall were due to be cast in special green light.
The Conference of the Parties (COP) brings together over 120 world leaders in Glasgow, including Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, for a two-week programme of negotiations, dialogue, and ambitious target setting.
As host and president, the UK Government is committed to ensuring an ambitious and inclusive summit striving to uphold the Paris agreement and put the world on track to keep 1.5 degrees global warming within reach.
In addition to Glasgow, a series of special COP26 panel events and discussions will also take place in Australia during the Summit.
