COP26 Task for KS3 and 4

Finding jobs that can help save the Planet

To coincide with the COP26 conference and the recent Earthshot Prize we have developed a task to help students explore some of the amazing green jobs they could do to help protect and improve our environment and save the planet.

The task will take 20 - 30 minutes and students will need access to the internet and the Careerpilot website.

What is COP26?

COP26 is the 2021 United Nations annual global summit about climate change and how countries are planning to tackle it.

COP stands for Conference of the Parties. Parties are the signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – a treaty agreed in 1994 which has 197 Parties (196 countries and the EU). 

The 2021 conference, hosted by the UK, will be the 26th meeting of the Parties, which is why it’s called COP26.

What is the Earthshot Prize?

The Earthshot Prize was launched in 2020 by Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and David Attenborough. 

It offered a £1 millon grant to individuals or organisations that tackle one of five ‘Earthshots’, all things that will help save the planet.

The Five Earthshots:

  • Protect and Restore Nature 
  • Clean our Air 
  • Revive our Oceans 
  • Build a Waste-free World 
  • Fix our Climate
