COP26: IT IS URGENT TO ACT AND COMMIT AGAINST THE CLIMATE CRISIS
Through this joint positioning, Alboan and Entreculturas urge the need to act, towards the reduction of CO2 emissions, climate financing, adaptation, compensation for damages and the application of national climate plans to avoid the "points of no return".
The 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change - COP26 (Glasgow: from 1 to 12 November 2021) is called to be the most important summit on climate change since the signing of the Paris Agreements in 2015. And it is that, Studies that warn about the need to take action are becoming more frequent, as we are getting dangerously close to the point of no return. The last was the study on climate change carried out by the Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Climate Change (IPCC), which was defined by the UN Secretary General, António Guterres as “a red alert for humanity”, as it denounces that “ it is indisputable that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, the oceans and the earth [...] It is indisputable that the human being is warming the planet ”. 
Faced with this reality, at Entreculturas and Alboan we have long been committed to promoting socio-environmental justice as one of our priority work causes. And it is that we understand that, in the face of this socio-environmental crisis, it is necessary to commit to life as a whole and to cultivate a lifestyle that guides us to the common good, to solidarity, to take care of the goods of nature, and to commit to the lives of the most vulnerable people and communities especially affected by the climate crisis.
