The scene of a COP26 crucial for the future of the planet, the Scottish city of Glasgow also welcomed demonstrators from all over the world, who came to protest on the sidelines of the UN climate conference. 

From October 31 to November 12, demonstrations followed one another, with their lots of hard-hitting slogans and performances of all kinds.

The 2015 Paris Agreement aimed to limit global warming to well below + 2 ° C, if possible at + 1.5 ° C, to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.

But, according to the latest UN estimates, the world is heading towards a “catastrophic” warming of + 2.7 ° C.

Here are the striking images of the mobilizations.

  • The scene of a COP26 crucial for the future of the planet, the Scottish city of Glasgow also welcomed demonstrators from around the world who came to protest on the sidelines of the UN climate conference. 

  • From October 31 to November 12, demonstrations followed one another, with their lots of hard-hitting slogans and performances of all kinds.

  • Some pretended to be fish in protest against the intensive fishing!

  • The face of the youth climate movement, Sweden's Greta Thunberg, called the Glasgow climate conference a "failure" in front of thousands of young people who came to demonstrate in this Scottish city to call for action against climate change, that threatens their generation and the following.

  • Obviously, the young people of "Fridays For Future" were present on Friday November 5th in Glasgow.

  • "Be the solution not the pollution" tells us this sign.

  • Indeed, it is not very “cool” for the polar bears, the melting of the sea ice due to global warming.

  • “Stop farting”, a very good advice for our cow friends, who produce methane when slacking off…

  • Yes, the water level on Earth is rising, it is undeniable!

  • But the danger of deforestation for our planet is just as important as the rising waters.

    It is not this leader, from the Huni Kuin people in Brazil, who will tell you the opposite.

  • “Profit before planet”, yes, there are still people who act like that today…

  • Indigenous peoples pleaded for the preservation of 80% of the Amazon in Brazil.

  • And of course, the number of people on Earth matters.

    The “Population Matters” group installed this “Big baby” to raise awareness about the increase in population.

  • The 2015 Paris Agreement aimed to limit global warming to well below + 2 ° C, if possible to + 1.5 ° C, to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, which are already wreaking havoc across the planet.

    Each additional tenth of a degree has its share of consequences.

  • But, according to the latest UN estimates, the world is heading towards a “catastrophic” warming of + 2.7 ° C.

    Everyone now has their eyes wide open to these issues.
