Who is Oxford working with?
The University of Oxford is not engaging with COP26 alone. Through our support of three high-profile university networks we are working to ensure that climate action draws on the best academic knowledge and expertise, both nationally and internationally.
COP26 Universities Network
The University of Oxford is a partner in the COP26 Universities Network, a group of over 30 universities working to strengthen access to research, evidence and academic expertise to support a successful COP26 in Glasgow.
The Network is undertaking a number of initiatives, including joint research briefings (see here >> for an example), media and public engagement, expert advice and events. The Network is also working with Italian universities, to engage effectively with the UK-Italy partnership for COP26.
If you would like to get involved in the COP26 Universities Network initiatives, please check the opportunities pages, which will include the latest requests from the Network.
