Meet the Bootcamp campaigners at COP26

Campaigners from the Bootcamp community took to the streets of Glasgow in Scotland during the UN's global climate conference, COP, to campaign for climate justice.

In its 26th year, the two-week event in November 2021 brought leaders from across the world to debate about solutions to climate change.

Campaign Bootcamp trainer and activist, Nim, interviewed four Bootcampers at COP26 to hear more about what they’re campaigning on, how environmental justice is racial justice, and their top tips for anyone who wants to campaign on climate issues but doesn’t know where to start.
