‘Cities and the Climate Crisis’ Available On Demand With Less than a Month To Go Before Built Environment takes Centre Stage at COP26

With less than a month before built environment takes centre stage at COP26, 'Divided We Fall: Cities and the Climate Crisis' is being made available on demand.

This virtual Pre-COP event brought leading climate scientists, city experts and urban place managers from five different countries and three different continents together.

The event is now streaming as the ATCM Chair, CEO and members of staff, confirm their attendance at COP26 and England's Environment Agency delivers a stark warning to ‘adapt or die’ in the face of climate breakdown.
