Green Key are attending COP26 the UN Climate Change Conference

Green Key England are thrilled to be attending the UN Climate Conference alongside representatives from the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

FEE will be hosting a talk in the Green Zone on Tuesday 2nd November 3.30-5pm in the Science Show Theatre entitled ‘Climate Action – Harnessing the Power of Networks!’.

Attending alongside Green Key England and FEE will be Alok Dixit, General Manager at London Marriott Hotel Regents Park and Sustainability Chair for Marriott UK. Alok will be talking about how the Green Key programme can be used to support climate action in the hospitality industry, environmental actions at his hotel and why Marriott are striving to get all their UK hotels accredited with Green Key.

Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) is the world’s largest environmental education organisation, with 100 members in 79 countries. Through five ground-breaking programmes, we empower people to take meaningful and purposeful action to help create a more sustainable world.

The theme of COP 26, ‘Together for Our Planet’ provides an important platform to showcase the impacts being created by the network of FEE and explain how each programme is driving the agenda of Climate Action. FEE has prioritised Climate Change, along with Biodiversity Loss and Pollution, as key areas of urgent action for its 10-year strategy – GAIA 20:30.

Through panel presentations, the event will showcase stories of positive actions from around the world. It will bring together voices of different stakeholders such as youth leaders from Eco-Schools, managers of Green Key awarded establishments, municipalities with Blue Flag accredited sites, and Young Reporters for the Environment.

The event will explore how the FEE network is able to make an impact at a global scale with common principles and goals to achieve a sustainable world. It will connect the global impact FEE is creating through stories of change supported by local examples from stakeholders from the UK.

Keynote – Ms Lesley Jones, President FEE
