COP26 Helps Keep 1.5 Alive

Protesters accused politicians of spouting empty words, but some see real reason for hope out of the UN Climate Change Conference.

“Blah blah blah,” said many protesters’ signs during COP26 (the 26th Conference of the Parties, where the governments and other parties come together to make international commitments on climate change). The accusation of empty words echoed a September speech delivered by climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Although the news (or lack thereof) from the conference frustrated many people, others say there is still reason for hope. We spoke with architects who attended COP26 about their impressions.
