The U.S. ACE Coalition Delegation to COP26 will build on the U.S. ACE Framework and other previous U.S. ACE community work to advocate for stronger, more just, and more intersectional ACE work at the national and international level. If you or your organization is going to COP or interested in engaging and learning with us virtually, join us to coordinate efforts and make the case for ACE.
You and your organization do not need to be going to COP to participate - there will be opportunities to get involved virtually or in person, badged or unbadged!
what are we doing?
Education for Climate Action - Three Recommendations for Sustainable and Climate Resilient Schools During COP26
"It is time for school leaders and their communities to reimagine all aspects of K-12 schooling - campus, curriculum, community, and culture - through a lens of sustainability, equity, health, and climate resiliency."
Collective Action Position Statement signed October 2021.

What will the delegation do?
The U.S. ACE Coalition Delegation will host side events, press conferences, and networking events at COP26 to feature ACE work in the U.S. and promote ACE as critical to climate solutions. Additionally, the delegation will support organizations holding webinars and briefings to share COP and ACE news with their audiences at home.
What does joining the delegation mean for me and my organization?
Whether you're joining virtually or in person, participation in the U.S. ACE Coalition Delegation ensures that your organization will be promoted as part of the U.S. ACE landscape and provides networking and potential speaking opportunities (we will try to involve virtual participants as much as possible). Participation does NOT include mandatory calls, major obligations or time commitments, though there are roles you or your organization can sign up for to support the delegation’s efforts. U.S. ACE Coalition Delegation members will receive social media toolkits and be invited to meetings and get-togethers during COP to coordinate ACE efforts and advocacy.
Can you provide badges for the blue zone?
Unfortunately, the delegation cannot provide accreditation or badges for COP26.
