    World leaders should be reponsible for the goal to reach 50% less carbon emmisions because they have the control over their country and can make change happen much more easily then a normal citizen

      Which perspective matter the most when making decisions about targets to redace emissions? Why ?

      World leaders , Because they are the owners of the supreme decisions and the controllers of the peoples and the world, and accordingly they take the fateful decisions to preserve the world and put in place the crisis and strict laws to stop the severity of emissions and to address the status quo of these emissions to make the world better and motivate society to use environmentally friendly uses.

        I think that world leaders can make a lot of changes if they try, but the problem is that some world leaders don't care about the environment or the well-being of their citizens so the right people must be in charge to solve this problem.

      Yes, I quite agree with you. World leaders are quite influential when this kind of decision making comes. But don't you think that it more varies according with every individual, specially the youths, whereas the average age of the world leaders participating such conferences are the people above their 50s. And many people prefer to listen to the today's youth instead of the world leaders. Young are a majority when it comes to population division by age in a chart. Considering the included factors, young people would be more attracted towards a pop singer or soccer player's concerns or declaration than of a president's concern or view, tough even the subject is same, like climate change.
      So, my question is, don't you think that today's youth and the people 'who influence today's youth and children' are to be more influential when it comes to reduction of mass carbon dioxide or such other climate changing factors?

          Yes, I strongly believe in it. It might be a bitter truth, but it is a fact that,"Young people are more attracted towards the celebrities than that of the world leaders' perspectives and views ".
          Whom do people listen to? People listen to the individuals who give them inspiration, peace and trust.
          Humans are anything but innovative and ever-changing. In the past, people were more influenced by the words of the political leaders. But due to some advancements, in the present time, young people care more what their favourite star or idol says than what do the government say. Children and young people are more inspired and have more trust towards them.
          Let's set some real examples.
          Since 2013, Portuguese football player Christiano Ronaldo has been actively an ambassador of 'Save the Children 'and has successfully drawn enough 'International attention' and 'Young participants ' regarding the Syrian children crisis.
          In recent times, the Korean president himself said in the UN discussion-'It has been easier to negotiate important climate change discussions as more young participants are getting attracted to the campaign since the Korean boy band members, BTS, were choosed as the special presidential envoys of the UN".
          So,'who are the promoters' is more portrayed than' what has been promoted'.

          Today's youth and children are tomorrow's future. So, the individuals who inspire and influence them are really a crucial part in such discussions.

    I think that the perspectives of the most affected people (or counties), that might also fall in the category of poor countries (people) who are not much responsible for climate change, due to climate change should be given priority in the COP 26 because they are suffering and as you might have heard "necessity is the mother of creation " ,so they need some steps to be taken at international level to overcome the bad situation in their countries. Thus they might have some good and effective ideas to reach this goal. But it's totally necessary for COP 26 to be as inclusive as it can, because we can't take a decision just by only listening to one group or section!

    In my opinion we can only show climate change if we work together.Everyone must be involved with decision at COP26. There is no point in doing it unless it can be fully inclusive.
    Point:2 In my thoughts
    Poorer countries affect more than richer because the poorer countries have no . money to build their houses, businesses and other facilities again.when richer countries have enough money to build their houses and other facilities. And richer countries should help the poorer countries.and the last thing I want to write is that perspectives can be useful in the stopping of any major problem same goes for COP26.

    In my point of view, getting less emissions is the responsibility of all countries poor or rich , of all citizens , of any one who live on this planet. All of as should stand hand in hand and forget all the problems . Quick move to save the plant from disaster. Remember when disaster comes it doesn't depreciate and classify countries into poor or just as what happens in Clovid19 disaster. This is my perspective for emissions , as the whole world united to face Corona ,they should united to face emissions.

    In my opinion , to search and end the origin of emissions is better and more saving for power and energy of all members, citizens, world leaders, young , old ..etc. The gases emitted from factories, shops and bakeries are harmful to health, and this affects the community. It is better to build shops and bakeries that emit these gases on the outskirts of cities in order to reduce these gases and to grow plants and trees to absorb these gases. Cars also greatly affect the pollution of the environment because they emit gases that pollute the environment in the future. Why don't we run these cars on electricity so that these gases do not come out, and it is possible to plant bushes around the houses to purify the atmosphere of these gases that are harmful to health.
    Here , as the Chinese proverb said to light a candle is better than dicarse the darkness. We stand hand in hand to reduce emissions and save people.

      The citizens are not to take decisions, they are to give their ideas to the leaders so that the leaders can get idea about any scenerio from the perspectives of individual citizens. In such way, no perspectives are overlooked and it would be easier for the Leaders to show inclusivity in their acts and can take comprehensive decisions to downturn climate change for the betterment of our mother Earth.

    It's difficult to priorities perspectives, since every opinion is important and it's a very subjective area. When it comes to climate change, opinions of all citizen equally matter, because this havoc is going to affect the whole world equally, just in different forms and at varied time. However, it implausible to bring in account suggestion of each individual, thus two prominent groups that can compensate for this gap are world leaders(not richer countries) and people most affected by it. World leaders because such nations usually own better technology and money to fund the research and there opinion matters not because of their economy but due to their influence on other countries and undeclared monopoly. Their satisfactory involvement in the discussion is crucial of successful implementation. Perspectives of people most affected are critical. Their thoughts will also manifest the lack of awareness about the gravity of the issue and their basic requirement should be acknowledged when working on the ground.

    From my side..
    The most affected people , poor countries and their leader's perspective matters the most as they knew more about the current situation and need . And they may come up with solutions too. One more thing, the most prior decisions are of world leaders as they are more on the top of decision taking level. Industries should be heavy fined if not they are found not following the seriousness of improving climate change..any harmful gas emitting factory or shop should use more eco friendly techniques to save climate . As "small steps adds to large".

    The perspectives of countries most affected by the problems related to climate change matters most because they are most affected and they are suffering from critical conditions and the leaders should be responsible for that to help them to come out or over come from the crisis because they have the control over their countries and can make progress by leading with an example!!!!!

    So a lot of the above comments were saying that the world leaders should be responsible for the above-mentioned problem, but from my perspective, I think it isn't entirely true. A world leader is but a single person, and even if he/she can exercise power, he/she can never bend people's wills. For that reason, the perspective of the citizens, specially from the countries who are most affected by the climate change, must be taken into account.

    I'd like to pick the topic regarding payment. The world leaders can play the biggest role in making the decisions. However, rich countries should come forward to help the poor countries affected by climate change by providing monetary support. If the rich countries come forward according to the invitation of the world leaders, or by themselves, stronger steps can be taken to mitigate the loses and damages caused due to climate change.

There is no point in doing it unless it can be fully inclusive. And I actually saw a lot of comments saying that the world leader is the one who should be responsible about the problem above but from my perspective I see that a world leader is still one person and I don't believe that he/she should be responsible about the problem above by himself/herself
    Point 2 in my own perspective i think that poor countries will not have the chance to share their opinions at the cop26 because of the poor education so richer countries should help poor countries to have a satisfied education because as I said above the only way to show climate change is if we worked together

    In my honest opinion , not only one group's perspective is more valuable than the other . In such a crisis , working together should be one of the prior aims . But people or countries who are being most affected by climate change should have the privilege of putting forward their perspectives at first . Because these people know the affects and can have better solutions or suggestions to it . Mostly these countries are poor and under developed. So to these people , world leaders and rich (developed ) countries can provide help , more perspectives and suggestions and can also help financially to bring best results forward. In such a way , so many better perspectives can come together to fulfil the main goal . But no perspective should be overlooked and all voices should be heard equally , because all voices matter equally .

        Speaking personally , I believe this can easily be quite realistic if all the nations and countries around the world , work together irrespective of each other's flaws and mistakes and work towards the one definite purpose i.e. saving ourselves and our planet from a humanitarian crisis. If we all stay of the thought of not working together because of our inter-related problems and issues , then we can lose all that we have and also our planet . So it is necessary for us to make this realistic in order to save ourselves i.e. all the humans. But the things that might get in the way of countries listening to each other would be their inter-related problems which can be overlooked because inclusivity and working together is important in resolving this issue.

    I am going to share my opinion of whose perspectives should be listened more in COP26, in particular, who should pay more or be emphasized in the discussion.

    So, from my view, poor countries or, in other words, the countries who are the most affected should be given the priority.

    The question 'why?' comes to our mind as the opinion is declared. Well, poor countries are the ones who are the least responsible for the causes of climate change, but sadly they are the ones who get the most affected. It is not a surprise that the poor nations of the world are the most economically unstable. Considering the fact who should pay more, for the rich, it is a bill; for the poor, it is a burden. On top of that, poor countries are lagging behind in educational facilities, higher job opportunities, stable power- all the fundamental units for developing a better perspective.
    Leaders represent people; hence, people come first. Thus, the perspective of the leaders must go with the margin of the people. Reasoning that, leaders aren't most prioritized in this opinion, but perhaps second.
    Since poor countries are the most affected and neglected, it is best if the poor nations are highlighted when it comes to intensifying the perspectives. Rich nations, most of the time, are able to pull their attention. Thus, not only the decided opinion is logical but also brings an inclusive discussion for the COP26.

    1) Young people from the countries have the energy and knowledge to drive climate action – but they need collaboration and investment from decision-makers at the national and international level.
    2) Young people are the future, and we need to hand over a better world.” Youth often hear such sentiments – and we are grateful. But in the run-up to the UN climate talks (COP 26) in November, young people from all sectors and countries need actions: collaboration, binding agreements and funding.

    Richer Countries have a high economy ,So they own factories and are able to reduce emissions by limiting the working period of the factories, but the poor countries confess in that they can ask the rich countries to reduce their emissions if they affect them or affect oxygen of this poor countries, but heads of state can ask the factories to reduce emissions, but this talk may not be taken care of by the factory workers. As for the people who are largely concerned with the environment, they can contribute donating to reduce emissions or making campaigns asking factories to reduce the emissions the produce, but people who are not interested in the environment can contribute, They watch the news but do not show any reaction. As for the citizens , they are different groups of people, most of whom can be interested and the other does not occupy their minds, And the emphasis is on all ages, but I think that the ages of least interest are the young people, because I think that what they care most about is making themselves happy in life and nothing more.

    All perspectives should be heard for the COP26 , but due to the presence of COVID-19 we may find difficulty in making it fully inclusive this year .
    So I belive that COP26 shouldn't be posponed due to our need to find a quick solution for the crisis of the global climate change .
    Countries as Japan , India and Germany got affected very negatively due to the climate change .
    In 2018 Japan made it the most threatened country in the world by climate change due to the earthquake and jebi typhoon which ravaged Japan causing alot of deaths .
    As well as the Indian subcontinent is the other major victim of extreme heat , floods and sandstorms .
    Germany was another country that suffered in 2018 because it was the the hottest year in its history .
    Although we need to make sure that the COP26 is fully inclusive we must keep in our minds that countries are suffering from climate change , so I belive that it should be done as soon as possible even it wasn't that much inclusive because misfortunes can happen anytime .

    I cerebrate the 1st world countries should be more sapient in making their decisions because they have more more influence on others, specially the 3rd world countries, withal they have an immensely colossal influence in accomplishing the goals of minimizing the pollutions and the emmisions.

    I believe that if every great bellwether priotize the opinions of others perspective, specially of those who suffer from this quandary, if would be one of the best option of solving this devastating quandary because
    all their active involution in this discussion is very crucial of prosperous implementation

Thus people can understand the problem and stand with the most affected participants and raise campaigns .Thus we can enlighten the governments and politicians and we can force them to provide financial help though it might be the fear of demonstrating organizations

    I think, to take any decision, the people who are highly affected by climate change should have the highest priority as they know about the reality.
    In this case, we should take decision according to their requirement. And the countries having higher GDP like USA, Canada should come forward to protect the poor countries like Bangladesh, San Marino, Congo from the adverse effects of climate change with the resources they have.

        Helping others is the most important thing to battle together with a burning issue.
        If there is climatic disorder in any poor country, they will suffer a lot as they have insufficient monetary asset, food, health care facility and other necessary aids.
        The first thing that they can do is to help the poor countries with sufficient money, aid and other necessary things.
        And if this helping procedure remains on, it will be easier for us to cope up with the challenges of climate change.

        United, we stand.

    In my judgment, The views of the countries most affected by climate change problems are very important because they are deeply affected and affected by the crisis and leaders should look into that to help them get out or get out of trouble because they have control of their countries and can make progress by leading.

    We should be inclusive in times of making any decision for both the advantages of short term and long term. However, the people who are most-affected by climate change, should be prioritized when it comes to any decision making as those decision will have direct consequence on them. The people who are least-affected by the climate change, may or may not realize how devastating climate change really is. Hence, there is a chance that their perspective may overlook the necessity and perspective of the most-affected people. And about the payment, The World Leaders perspective should be looked first as they definitely have the plans and future-thought about such issues.
    Climate change is a catastrophic issue for the world. We all should play our individual role inclusively from our own position for slowing it down as soon as possible and decision should be made and implemented quickly for saving our PLANET, for saving our FUTURE.

    In the above game, there was a situation where targets had to be set to help countries reduce their emissions, and the question was which perspective is most important in making decisions about emission reduction targets. From my point of view, I will rank the people most affected by climate change as number one.
    Because, they know the situation, what it is like to be a victim of climate change and they can clarify their problems and solutions in the best possible way. On the contrary, those least affected by climate change will understand the problems, but less than those most affected.

    When we talk about "Whose perspective matters the most", I believe there is no certain individual to mention in this this regard, rather anyone's perspective can matter the most. You don't need to be a President, politician, social activist or some specific influential person to make your perspective effectual, rather your perspective needs to be something special. Each and everyone of have different and unique perspectives, that's why I believe anyone can come up with a perspective which will be both admirable and effectual for everyone. We just need to believe in our perspectives and need to learn to make decisions on our own. Most of the times, we give priority to the perspectives of some certain groups of people, only because they belong to higher class community. If we start believing the fact that everyone has different and unique perspectives of their own, from that very time we will be able to make the world a better place for everyone.

    Everyone's perspective matters
    Anyone's perspective can matter the most, because you don't need to be in a certain position or profession to make words matter the most.

    And that's the reason on the 20th August 2018, Greta Thunberg, who had just started ninth grade, decided not to attend school until the 2018, began her protest for the heat waves, wildfires and started to accentuate her perspectives in front of the world. And now, millions people are supporting her perspective and making it their mission.

    I think that world leaders can make a lot of changes if they try, but the problem is that some world leaders don't care about the environment or the well-being of their citizens so the right people must be in charge to solve this problem.
