Bloomberg Green to lift paywall for COP26

During the week of November 8, Bloomberg Green will host a series of events on the ground in Glasgow and available on livestream. The events will convene corporate leaders, government officials, and industry specialists from NGOs, IGOs, and academia for conversations focused on creating solutions to support the goals set forth at COP26. All events (with the exception of the Burning screening below) will be livestreamed on Bloomberg.com, the Bloomberg Terminal, on Twitter @BloombergLive and @Business, on YouTube via the Bloomberg Live channel, and on Facebook via Bloomberg Business.

Owen’s’ Propagate and Amazon Studios and executive produced by Cate Blanchett’s Dirty Films, Burning will be released globally on Amazon Prime Video in November 2021.
