COP26 events

Discover a programme of internal and external COP26 related events and activities run by our Stirling Community of staff and students as well as by the wider local community.

Below you’ll find a diverse range of virtual events and in-person activities aligned to the international summit themes of clean energy, clean transport, nature-based solutions, adaptation and resilience, climate finance, and to the Scottish Government themes of people and just transition.

We’ll update the calendar regularly so keep checking back to see what’s on.

You can find out more about the breadth of Stirling research and how it will contribute to our future understanding of the impact of climate change with the COP26 bite-size lecture series, blogs and more.

Research seminar

Monitoring and Adapting to Invasive Aquatic Weeds in India is a 2-part event that will explore how monitoring and adapting to environmental change is key for surviving and thriving during climate change.

The event will begin with a video presentation exploring the work funded by a Frontiers Follow-on grant from the Royal Academy of Engineering to monitor the growth of a highly invasive and damaging weed in India, water hyacinth and the work by Indian partners in finding ways to use water hyacinth biomass to develop sustainable materials and energy production, turning a problem into a solution.

The video will be followed by a live Q&A with Dr Savi Maharaj (University of Stirling), Dr G Nagendra Prabhu (Centre for Research in Aquatic Resources, Sanatana Dharma College, Kerala, India), and Dr Aviraj Datta (ICRISAT, Hyderabad, India).
