Jojo Mehta, co-founder and Executive Director, Stop Ecocide International has been invited to address the GLOBE Legislators Summit at the Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh on 6th November
GLOBE International has hosted legislators’ summits coinciding with the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COPs), since its very inception almost 30 years ago. These are key moments for cross-party legislators to convene, share innovations and best practice, network and strategise on common agendas. Outcomes can include calls to action, regional action plans, task forces or campaigns.
This year, GLOBE International is honored to be working in partnership with the Scottish Parliament, one of the world’s youngest and most modern parliaments. In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this will be a hybrid event. Physical participation in the chamber at Holyrood, the Scottish Parliament, will prioritise parliamentary delegates, including those from partner parliamentary networks. Thanks to the Scottish Parliament’s state -of-the-art IT facilities, however, we hope to reach thousands more parliamentary delegates around the world through our digital platform. The virtual Summit will also be open to other stakeholders, including business and civil society, as observers.
