Councillor Susan Aitken on the decision to postpone the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference, which was due to take place in Glasgow in November, due to the Corona Virus pandemic.
The Leader of Glasgow City Council said: “It is absolutely the right decision to postpone COP26 as the world is in the midst of fighting the COVID19 pandemic.
“We will continue to work with partners to be ready to host a successful climate change conference and look forward to welcoming delegates to Glasgow next year.
“Whenever COP26 takes place, as host city Glasgow stands ready to not only deliver a superb event, but also secure a lasting legacy and low carbon future for our city and the planet.”
