COP26 - Children's Voices

COP26 Children’s Voices for Climate Change

Schools in Scotland and Chile worked with university researchers in both countries to ensure children and young people’s voices are heard by policymakers at the 2021 COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties climate change conference in Glasgow. 

Researchers from the Network for Social and Educational Equity (NSEE) and Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland (CNS) and the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso in Chile, worked with teachers and almost 160 children and young people aged from 11 to 15 years old from St. Peter’s High School and St. Eunan’s Primary in Scotland, and Escuela Luis Cruz Martinez in Chile. 

The young people used CNS’s Children’s Voices research model, which attempts to explore and understand the priorities of children and young people to allow for greater participation in decisions that concern them.
