Shaftesbury Eco-Activists Share COP26 Experiences On Return From Glasgow

Karen Wimhurst from Shaftesbury and Richard Eccleston from Donhead St Andrew attended the COP26 protests in Glasgow, separately.

Karen went for a weekend, while Richard and his wife Karen stayed for the full two weeks.

Karen paints a picture of a fringe-like atmosphere with a lot of creative art promoting the message of climate campaigners. Richard highlights the size and scale of the events and how some accommodation owners were cashing in on the 40,000 delegates and over 100,000 protesters.

Both Richard and Karen believe their attendance made a difference.
