COP-26 – UN CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE
We were absolutely delighted to get the opportunity to travel to COP-26, as part of a group of Dingle Peninsula 2030 delegates.
The team of delegates, representing the Dingle Peninsula 2030 sustainability initiative, made the trip in electric vehicles. On 1st November 2021 the representatives of Dingle Peninsula 2030 departed Dingle for Glasgow to participate in COP-26, the UN Climate Change Conference. Travelling by electric vehicle they visited communities in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland who are working on similar sustainability and transition initiatives, to share learnings. The journey was sponsored by Kerry Co Co as part of the Covenant of Mayors and by ESB Networks.
The Dingle Peninsula 2030 team participated in a side event on “Transforming climate solutions for business, cities and civil society in Europe & Latin America”at COP-26 in Glasgow on 2nd November 2021. The event showcased stories of positive actions from around the world, bringing together voices of different stakeholders to illustrate how impact is being made at a global scale by an engaged network with common principles and goals to achieve a sustainable world.
This year, COP-26 is orientated around the central goal of securing global net-zero by mid-century and keeping 1.5 degrees within reach.
The Dingle Peninsula 2030 team travelling included – Deidre de Bhailís (Dingle Hub Manager), Denis Galvin (West Kerry Dairy Farmer’s SEC, ESB Networks Dingle Project Ambassador), Jeanne Spillane (Maharees Conservation Association, a Community Energy Mentor) and Evan Boyle (post-doctoral researcher with MaREI)
Bhí áthas an domhain an deis a fháil chun dul go COP-26 ó 1-3 Samhain.
Dhein an foireann an turas go dtí Comhdháil Athrú Aeráide na Náisiún Aontaithe i nGlaschú i bhfeithiclí leictreacha. Ar an gcéad lá de Mhí na Samhna 2021 d’fhág toscairí Chorca Dhuibhne 2030 an Daingean ar a slí go Glaschú chun páirt a ghlacadh in COP-26, Comhdháil Athrú Aeráide na Náisiún Aontaithe. Ag taisteal i bhfeithiclí leictreacha, thugadar cuairt ar phobail i bPoblacht na hÉireann, Tuaisceart Éireann agus Albain atá ag obair ar thioscnaimh eile bainteach le hinmharthanacht agus aistriú chun foghlaim óna chéile.
Bhí foireann Chorca Dhuibhne 2030 páirteach in imeacht ar leataobh faoi “Réitigh chlaochlaitheacha aeráide do ghnó, cathracha agus an sochaí sibhialta san Eoraip agus i Meiriceá Laidineach” ag COP-26 ar 2 Mí na Samhna 2021 i nGlaschú. Thug an imeacht seo ardán do scéalta faoi ghníomhaíochtaí dearfacha ó ar fud an domhain, ag tabhairt le chéile guthanna ó pháirtithe leasmhara difriúla chun taispeáint conas mar atáthar ag déanamh difríocht ar scála domhanda trí líonra gníomhach, le prionsabail agus spriocanna coiteanna, chun domhan inmharthanach a bhaint amach.
I mbliana, tá COP-26 eagraithe timpeall ar sprioc lárnach an domhan a bheith neodrach ó thaobh fuinnimh faoi lár an chéid, agus ardú teochta domhanda nach mó ná 1.5º a choimeád indéanta.
