The 26th global conference on the environment — COP26 — was postponed last year due to Covid, striking a heavy blow to those who believed the gathering was humanity's last chance to rescue the 2015 Paris climate accord, and avert the looming climate disaster.The conference's postponement didn't deter hundreds of committed, articulate, passionate young people from almost 150 countries around the world from coming together virtually, to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing our planet. "Mock COP26" resulted in a proposed treaty containing 18 powerful calls to action, a document that will hopefully help shape the debate at the re-scheduled COP26, to take place in Glasgow this November.
In this Stop Ecocide Canada podcast, two Mock COP26 participants discuss the event, their hopes and concerns going forward, and their views on changing laws to make ecocide a crime.

These are thoughtful, passionate — and youthful — voices that demand to be heard.
