UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE
University of the Third Age will be guest contributors at the Climate Café with Climate Reality at Our COP26 Climate Café on Friday 5th and Tuesday 9th at 11.00am and 3.00pm on both days. See more about their work here.
u3a (University of the 3rd Age) is a UK-wide movement of interest groups. Members explore new ideas, skills and activities together. There are over 450,000 members. Interest groups meet in the UK, face to face and online. In these workshops, members will tell their ‘climate stories’; an intergenerational element to the discussions will include members of the Children’s Parliament and from Wales, young people involved in Size of Wales/Maint Cymru (Securing Forests, Connecting Communities, Inspiring Climate Action).
* Climate Reality has partnered with One Tree Planted and World Land Trust to provide a legacy for every visitor at our virtual and in-person events in Glasgow. Through our partner, One Tree Planted, each visitor will be able to choose from 34 locations across the world to plant a tree. We will also be donating £1 to World Land Trust for each visitor with the total sum going towards purchasing and protecting critically threatened land for wildlife through their Buy an Acre programme. This opportunity has been funded by Climate Reality Leader Katherine Smith and her family.
Thank you to our hosts at First Bus Glasgow for hosting our Climate Café & Climate Reality space for the duration of COP26.
