The Mockcop 26 event was the last stop of The DGA Roadshow 2021 that travelled across the UK. It took place in October at the Aberdeen Science Centre's Shell Learning Zone. Pupils from Hazlehead Academy and Oldmachar Academy then got the opportunity in December 2021 to take on the role of world leaders and climate experts at a mock COP26 event.
Inspired by the Mockcop 26 event we continue to spread awareness about the energy transition and its role in climate change. Taking place in the Town and County Hall in Aberdeen, the event explains the aims and objectives of COP26 to the students, emphasising how the energy transition is an integral part of the discussions on climate change and how as the next generation, youngsters have a unique role to influence and persuade world leaders to make important changes.
Pupils from across Aberdeen got the opportunity in March 2022 to take on the role of world leaders and climate experts at a mock COP26 event.
