  • What is its legacy?
  • What hopes and concerns do young people have for the process and the outcomes of COP26?
  • How can we go beyond the Glasgow agreements to accelerate climate action?
  • How can we all ensure that young people’s voices are heard and listened to?
  • How can we get food and farming concerns front and centre in the future?
  • What can we as food citizens do to promote urgent and radical change?
