Please read before submitting your COP26 Final Piece

Thank you to everyone who have submitted their Final Piece for our Project on COP26!

Our Project has moved onto Afghanistan but you still have a bit more time - we'll be accepting Final Pieces up until Friday November 4th.

A Final Piece brings together your thinking from the Project and if you're doing Topical Talk lessons in class, your teacher will guide you through your Final Piece.

If you are following the Project on the Student Hub, the template for writing your Final Piece is here.


Before submitting your Final Piece, you MUST:

  1. Label it as a FINAL PIECE, not a Discussion starter.
  2. Add an image (this can be one from our library, or if you want to draw your own, that's also fine)
  3. Give it your own title (not just "Final Piece" but a title that sums up what you're saying!)

What makes a great Final Piece?

We're looking for Final Pieces that:

  • Give specific, substantial ideas on the questions - for example: Q2 - exactly why it's important perspectives are not overlooked? or for Q4: exactly what can be done to improve the next COP? Use the Top Tips of the Final Piece sheet to help you.
  • Show you have thought specifically about the questions and are not just repeating what you have heard your teacher say, or repeating what you have read on the internet
  • Final Pieces must be entirely in your own words.

To see good examples of Final Pieces - check out the Editors' Picks!

If you have any questions about Final Pieces, please write them below.

Good luck and we look forward to reading your Final Pieces!

    First, I do not support war
    The reasons, for example, we have in Palestine or other countries, they do not have a strong defense line, nor air, nor land, nor sea flights, in which they can face the aggression.
    The second reason.. is when there is no strong line of defense, there is no safety or peace in this country, and the children die
    This is for if you support war
    Secondly, when I support war
    The first reason..for this country to take its right and make deals and conferences to stop the war
    The second reason is the confrontation with freedom and justice
    There are countries that have the ability to fight the wars that come to them
    But there are countries that cannot face these wars
    So I ask the officials when they do wars to think before they do it
    and reconciliation between the state they are fighting.

    My final piece, I called it (the last chance). Perhaps the COP26 participants have a little time that they can use to improve the conference and come up with decisions to stop the climate change monster that is trying to swallow us up and which at that time we cannot resist. Perhaps those in charge of the conference will be able to come up with satisfactory and convincing results. Until the door of fear of the future is closed on a land that contains us, we do not feel safe, so look for safety and live without fear of dangers threatening us. The first week includes technical negotiations by government officials, followed by high-level ministerial and heads of state meetings in the second week, when final decisions are (or are not) made.

    There are four main points that will be discussed during the conference depending on the host country, the United Kingdom:

    First, secure global net zero by mid-century, and keep 1.5°C within reach

    To do this, countries need to accelerate the phase-out of coal and reduce deforestation, and accelerate the transition to greener economies. Carbon market mechanisms will also be part of the negotiations.

    Second, adapt more to protect communities and natural habitats

    Because the climate is already changing, countries already affected by climate change need to protect and restore ecosystems, as well as build defenses, warning systems, and resilient infrastructure.

    Third, crowdfunding

    At COP 15, rich nations promised to transfer $100 billion annually to less affluent countries by 2020 to help them adapt to climate change and mitigate further warming.

    That promise has not been fulfilled, and this year's COP will be critical to securing financing, with the help of international financial institutions, and setting new climate finance targets to be achieved by 2025.

    Fourth, work together to achieve goals

    This means establishing cooperation between governments, companies and civil society, and of course, finalizing the Paris Rule Book in order to make the agreement fully operational.

    In addition to formal negotiations, the 26th COP is expected to establish new initiatives and alliances to advance climate action and preserve it from extinction. The fate is in your hands, leaders, so have mercy on people who do not have a decision, but feel the scale of the risks. Think a little about them. Decide on your decisions and your outputs that will raise the specter of change from us. climatic. The decision is in your hands, and the world is in your hands, and that is your chance. You must have heard the earth’s distress from fears threatening it and threatening us humans. Take advantage of the opportunity.”

    my final piece called it (Unifying together with cop26)
    Climate crisis is a term describing the state of global warming and climate change and its consequences. It is used to describe the threat of global warming to the planet. It is important to listen to a range of perspectives when making decisions about the climate crisis To make a right and correct decision and know the consequences that will occur as a result of making this decision, but if a group of people is not listened to, a wrong decision will be taken and will result in damages, but it is not always easy for the events to be comprehensive Because there may be consequences or restrictions that have prevented it, and one of the global problems that must be solved is climate change, which does not happen on its own, but man is the reason for that, for example, he burns fossil fuels and greenhouse gases. They are few causes of climate change.cop26 It is the United Nations Climate Change Conference, and to know the views on it, meetings of leaders are held, topics are discussed and everyone's opinion is taken into consideration. Issues like these because I have experience and skills that can be benefited from, and because I have the freedom to express my opinion.

    Climate crisis is a scientific term that talks about global warming and climate change.
    In fact, when I heard about the climate crisis, I was afraid because that climate change will harm our planet in the long run ,
    And It is important to hear a range of perspectives when making decisions about the climate crisis because we need to know what other people think about the climate crisis so that we can make more realistic and correct decisions and If these perspectives are overlooked, this world will become undemocratic, many problems will arise, and incorrect decisions will be made that will harm the planet.

    And now what is the cop26 ?
    It is the twenty-sixth United Nations Climate Change Conference.
    Where world leaders will come together to take the action to protect our environment
    And To include many perspectives, organizers meet to express their opinions and discuss many perspectives to get the best ways to protect the environment. And From my point of view they should develop the upcoming meetings through ask the experts, get some people's opinions, and think of some advanced solutions that can help solve these issues.

    ( About COP26)

    1-The climate crisis, along with the loss of biodiversity, is the biggest challenge facing the world today. Rising global average temperatures have a profound impact on our climate . Now is our chance to address climate change. Today we will talk about the climate cri. Climate is naturally variable and this is visible through the irregularity of seasons from year to year. such as changes in ocean currents, volcanic activity, solar , the strength of the Indian monsoon, and so on. Hence, climate change is a major and permanent change in it

    2-As for my point of view, I think that awareness of the climate crisis has been raised It is now widely accepted among and other research circles that the complex, man-made issue of climate change threatens our entire civilized future. Because it follows a path of drastic, rapid, and possibly definitive changes in the global ecosystem in the relatively near future,

    3- Of course, climate events at the time are not comprehensive because climate change occurs when changes in the Earth’s climate system lead to the emergence of new climate patterns that remain in place for a long period of time, and this time period may be short, reaching only several decades, or it may reach millions of years. Scientists have identified many episodes of climate change during the geological history of the globe, and more recently.

    4- COP26 is the 2021 United Nations climate change conference
    For nearly three decades the UN has been bringing together almost every country on earth for global climate summits – called COPs – which stands for ‘Conference of the Parties’. In that time climate change has gone from being a fringe issue to a global priority.
    This year will be the 26th annual summit – giving it the name COP26. With the UK as President.
    ....
    in my opinion, knowledge of the climate crisis is very important to know the things of life

    Climate change from a student point of.view
    Climate crisi is a term describing the state of global warming ,climate change and its consequences.
    Use this term to describe the threat of global warming to the planet,and i feel a lot of questions about what will happen?
    Lagree with those who hear the views of more than one group on the crisis,because when we hear the views,we have a general picture of the thinking of some,and to know the solution to
    the crisis,we must hear suggestions and not over look the different points of view so as not to cause serious consequences,in cluding rushing to decisions that affect the situation and get it out of control as we have to know the idea from more than one party about the crisis because it helps to solve it.
    The creative thinking stratgy of the individual and the group is not an easy matter that is dealt with in a fleeting way,but it is a matter of very complexity as it is extremely important because it requires a set of principles that must always be embraced and an in tegrated belief in our a bility to face all crises,no matter how great they are.Crises are just a from of creatiive thinking.we must be able to invest the best time in addressing and over coming crises by following the scien tific methodology that helps us to do so,and in the midst of the corona epidemic storm that is ravaging societies,and the multiplicity of methodologies and ideas in dealing with this crisis.The systematic scientific method come as the best way to better address the crisis.
    the United Nations Climate change conference 2021,also know as COP26,is the 26th United Nations Climate change Conference.
    Countries are required under the poris Agreement to update their national climate action plans every five years,COP26.This year,they're expected to have expected to have ambitious targets through 2030.Tnese are know as nationally determined contributions,or NDs.
    The results of the opinon poll must go beyond some of the crises of matters that reflect the daily conflicts and fears facing the young generation in their countries.Consensus on the idea remained elusive and participation in the voices of young people helps to solve the crisis.

    Unifying together with COP26

    Climate crisis is a term describing the state of global warming and climate change and its consequences. The term has been used to describe the threat of global warming to the planet, and to urge mitigation of devastating climate change. For example, the article BioScience in January 2020, supported by more than 11,000 scientists worldwide, stated that "the climate crisis has arrived," and that "a massive increase in the scale of efforts to preserve our biosphere is necessary to avoid the untold suffering that the climate crisis will cause.I'm terrified that this is going to take a huge toll on our lives.

    It's important to take a view of this crisis, because without it, the world becomes undemocratic and does not like to listen.

    They vary from country to country, depending on their geographic location and their
    location on the equator.
    And what is the cop26?
    cop26 It is the United Nations conference and to know the opinion of the people and see their point of view, they hold meetings, listen to them and take their

    And it's important that I share my opinion about this, because it's important to me, because it's a focus of attention, and so that my voice reaches all over the world, young and old.

    Climate crisis: A term given to the state of global warming and climate change that negatively affects the environment. I feel bad about this because we have to persevere in changing it in different ways. The situation is made worse by humanity's neglect of this issue. In November, a global conference of world leaders and politicians in Glasgow, Scotland, will bring "COP26" together to discuss very important decisions. The organizers of "COP26" brought together all leaders and politicians to ensure a range of viewpoints, which is important
    Many neglect it and it causes problems, as a person, you want people to value your point of view and take it into account, so you should value their views, and when that happens, many things will be resolved in a simple way. Usually a person makes a wrong decision not of his knowledge, but when a person listens to others and others agree with the other opinion, the person will be convinced that his point of view is not entirely correct. I hope I have made it clear what the point of view is, let's go back to the heart of the matter, which is how opinions can be important when deciding on the climate crisis. Here is a simple example when you meet to discuss the climate crisis And listen to their point of viewYou will know the basis of the problem when you listen to their opinions to solve the problem and study it well, you may reach an effective solution to the problem .
    It is not always easier for the events to be all-encompassing, because there may be subtleties and obstacles. For example, one of the problems to be solved is the "climate crisis". Its events must be comprehensive so that it can be solved easily, but so far it has not been solved, because there are obstacles and things that a person cannot control, and perhaps there are things we do not know yet, “mysteries” We did not study or get into the details، so the events are incomplete, Which made solving the problem difficult. It is very important for me to express my opinion on such issues, because I consider my opinion to be a point of view that may help solve the problem. Also, such issues do not concern leaders alone, but concern everyone. If it is not resolved, everyone will perish.
