A major United Nations climate change summit will take place in Glasgow in 2020.
The UK has won the bid to host the 26th Conference of the Parties, known as COP26, following a partnership with Italy.
Up to 30,000 delegates are expected to attend the event at Glasgow’s Scottish Events Campus (SEC) at the end of next year.
It is designed to produce an international response to the climate emergency.
The UK will host the main COP summit while Italy will host preparatory events and a significant youth event, as part of the agreement.
Claire Perry, UK nominated president for COP26, said: “In 2020, world leaders will come together to discuss how to tackle climate change on a global scale – and where better to do so than Glasgow, one of the UK’s most sustainable cities with a great track record for hosting high-profile international events.”
