Was it our Last Best Chance: International Left Perspectives Post COP26

In government Labour was a leading force internationally on climate change with John Prescott playing a central role in Kyoto and Ed Miliband in Copenhagen. The following year the Labour Government introduced the world's first Climate Change Act. Labour continues to urge rapid and comprehensive action now. The Labour Party is part of the family of centre-left parties that are committed to rapid and comprehensive action to address the climate and nature emergencies and to secure a just transition to net zero.
For COP26, SERA: Labour's Environment Campaign, supported Open Labour and other parts of the Labour movement in hosting an event of centre left representatives from across the world to debate what is needed on climate and nature and what the COP must achieve. SERA is now supporting the follow up event.  

SERA Executive member, Alex Sobel, is hosting a post COP26 event reflecting on what happened and what we have to do domestically and internationally ahead. The event brings together voices from across our sister parties, parliamentarians and activists around the world, for a panel event. It takes place on Thursday 9 December, 18.30-20.30 at the Fabian Society, 61 Petty France, SW1H 9EU.
