From 1-12 November 2021, the UN climate talks (COP26) will take place in Glasgow. The COP26 Coalition is a broad UK-wide coalition of representatives from NGOs, faith groups, trade unions, direct action groups, student and youth, migrant and racial justice, grassroots and international climate justice networks, set up to coordinate activities around this crucial summit.
The Coalition will be the vehicle by which civil society plan together, share resources and learning, and organise a mass mobilisation and Peoples' counter-summit during the COP. It has the potential to support the transformation of the climate movement in the UK, to a stronger, more climate-justice centred movement long after COP26 is over.
The aims of the COP26 Coalition are to:
●Organise around COP26 in a transformative, climate justice-centred way, that creates space for hope and is inclusive and accountable to the full breadth of civil society and international climate movements
●Use COP26 as a moment to strengthen the Scottish, UK and International climate justice movements to build power for system change - before, during and after the COP.
●Enable civil society to use COP26 as leverage for making gains at the domestic level that advance climate justice, and ensure best outcome possible from the COP itself.
The Purpose of this Role
The Cop26 Coalition has secured funding to employ a Mass Mobilisation and Digital Engagement Officer based in Glasgow). This is an exciting opportunity to work with diverse organisations, networks and movements across Scotland, the UK and internationally in creating a series of digital and in person mobilisations on the ‘road to COP’, culminating with a successful, safe huge public event with an expected 500,000 people attending.
Initially working remotely, you will be based in Glasgow and hosted by Friends of the Earth Scotland, with another Officer based in London, hosted by War on Want.

As this is a UK Government hosted COP taking place in the devolved administration of Scotland, there is an unusual context to these talks. In planning and preparing for the mass mobilisation in November 2021, there will be cross-border political and civil society dynamics to consider, in addition to the repercussions of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Experience in online mobilisations and digital engagement is also required. Managed by the Coalition’s Glasgow Coordinator, also hosted by FoES, the role will be accountable to the Coalition. The post-holder will work closely with Coalition Working Groups, in particular the Mobilisation, Communications, and Glasgow Local Working Groups, in a flexible and open way that fully involves them in the planning and implementation of the mass mobilisations and any other planned mobilisations (digital and in person).
