Wrapping up, the UN’s Climate COP 26 took place in Glasgow, Scotland, October 31-November 12. Hashtags: #COP26 #TimeForAction

The event page features key links, headlines, analysis, videos, and tweets (check out the Twitter Moment we have curated). As with coverage of other international events, we asked how the event might best engage event attendees, as well as locals AND remote participants, before, during, and afterwards. Bonus points to others for archival photos, livestreaming video, and collaborative note-taking.

We believe that all events can be more engaging and some events of critical importance need to more public facing right now. Notes and suggestions are welcome as we follow these global meetings from afar.

What’s next? Climate COP 27 (Twitter Moment)
