Glasgow COP26 Hub
To mark the arrival of COP26 in Glasgow, this festival hub led by the University of Glasgow will take a contemporary spin on a long-established tradition through its creation of ‘The Bothy’ (a basic shelter, usually found in remote, mountainous areas and usually left unlocked and available for anyone to use free of charge). ‘The Bothy’ is imagined as a cultural hub and a civic refuge – both real and conceptual – through which to host a range of events and exchanges on the environment and climate change. Through these encounters researchers will demonstrate the vital role played by the humanities in addressing the climate emergency, and will collaborate with the city to activate the legacy of COP26.
The COP26 Hub Award has been made possible by special support from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
Keep an eye out for the full programme of events which will be revealed in early October.
