COP26 was the global climate summit which happened in Glasgow this November 2021, with leaders from around the world coming together to agree their climate commitments for the coming years.
In the run-up, we brought together over 50 Tokyo Olympians and Paralympians from around the world, including flag bearers from 35 different countries, challenging World Leaders about the urgent need for ambitious climate action.

We are building a team for athletes who want to make the world a better place. If you're an athlete with this same goal, please join us by leaving your details and we'll be in touch.
We are Hannah and Melissa - two GB athletes passionate about the role athletes can play
in making our planet a better place.
We believe that athletes have a unique opportunity to make positive change in this world, using sport's platform and its capacity to unite people behind an ambitious goal.
There's plenty in this world we need to fix, but by channeling the qualities athletes use all the time - resilience, teamwork, courage, ambition, adaptability and staying focussed under pressure - we give ourselves the best chance of success.
