Today, Friday, was “youth and public empowerment” day at COP26, with events designed to reach across generations and other lines. This youth audience was mostly to be found outside the venue where the negotiations are being held

Several thousand protesters took to the streets of Glasgow as part of a “Fridays for Future” march.

Our delegates on the ground have been able to participate in several gatherings. Read their latest updates:
