The COP26 climate summit is hosting huge exhibitions, as well as the climate negotiations. As the summit goes into its second week, DrillOrDrop has compiled this collection of images from some of the displays.
The ‘Blue Zone’
The exhibits in the blue zone are in the Scottish Events Campus on the north bank of the Clyde, behind the security cordon where the climate talks are taking place.
They are in a vast exhibition hall hosting “pavilions” by many of the delegate countries, as well as campaign organisations, think tanks, scientific bodies and climate groups. There are long lists of talks, many suits and lots of hopeful-sounding slogans.
The ‘Green Zone’
The exhibitions in the green zone are open to the public at the Glasgow Science Centre, on the opposite side of the Clyde. Many of the exhibitions are hosted by COP26 sponsors. Some invite people to make pledges said to help live in a more climate-friendly way. Others offer a future of carry on as we do now but with new technology.
