The Wombles visit the COP26 climate change conference
Orinoco, Great Uncle Bulgaria and Alderney appeared at COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow in November 2021.
They were in the Green Zone at the Glasgow Science Centre, where exhibitions, cultural performances, workshops and talks were open to the public.
The Wombles are supporting the UK government’s Together for Our Planet campaign to encourage all of us to go #OneStepGreener.
They’re also supporting Meat Free Monday with two new plant-based recipes for COP26, to encourage everyone to eat less meat for the sake of the environment. This follows the four recipes they published in April 2020.

We will be attending @COP26 to encourage everyone to make a personal commitment to go #OneStepGreener. As the original British eco-champions, we feel it is only right that we support the most important environmental event to have taken place in our country ♻️🌳- Alderney x pic.twitter.com/bb6N96pQLR— The Wombles (@womblesofficial) October 31, 2021
