WEF Webinars & Broadcasts on UK & International Climate & Energy Challenges 2020-21 up to COP26

The WEF Programme through to the COP26 Summit in Autumn 2021 provides an established and comprehensive mechanism by which senior stakeholders in the energy, climate and sustainability domains may remain fully briefed on the emerging issues affecting the UK’s long term strategies, and the international contexts shaping them. During COVID19 lockdown (Mar-Jul 2020) WEF helped to keep over 5000 professionals connected via our Outreach programme. For the 2020-21 WEF Season – our 18th year of operations - we are now able to deliver an enhanced and resilient programme in the run up to COP26 by blending our expert webinars with Outreach films and, hopefully, physical seminars again in due course.

The WEF Prospectus provides further information on the schedule ahead.
