At the summit, delegates including heads of state, climate experts and negotiators came together to agree coordinated actions to tackle climate change. As well as the negotiations, countries, international organisations and other delegates had the chance to showcase climate action, highlight diverse climate change issues and share knowledge.

COP26 Green Zone - 1 and 4 November 2021
As part of the COP26 Universities Network and UK Research and Innovation stands, the Supergen ORE Hub exhibited in the Green Zone, interacting with visitors using a mini demo tank, discussing the new children's adventure book, and sharing the world of offshore renewable energy research.
To celebrate the COP26 Energy Presidency Theme on 4 November, we launched our new Supergen ORE Hub video examining the role of offshore renewable energy research in mitigating climate change. Take a look to hear from the Hub Co-Directors and discover how we’re addressing some of the key research challenges in offshore wind, wave and tidal energy on the route to delivering net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
