West Midlands at COP26

West Midlands at COP26

We’re the birthplace of the first industrial revolution where coal and steam powered a global explosion in growth lasting over 250 years. This led to advances in science, medicine and food production, and transformed our modes of transport.

These advances came at a price - with unimaginable damage to the planet.  Now the West Midlands is looking to give something back. Our low carbon industries are thriving. We are developing the new technologies that are creating a green industrial revolution. 

You can watch this short film to see some of these strengths and innovations.

As the eyes of the world focus on the UK for leadership on climate action at COP26, it is time for the West Midlands to play its part once again. It is time for us to show our region’s strengths in leading this change.
