GLASGOW: Nov. 1-12, 2021
Open your home to a visiting activist, scientist, or policymaker.
Help support the movement by hosting a climate justice guest with the COP26 Homestay Network.
Why should I become a host?
Support climate action by housing activists and scientists overnight. Not only will you be supporting the international climate movement’s remarkable efforts, but housing a guest can reduce accommodation emissions by more than 80% and energy usage by more than 70%* compared to a hotel stay.
Fair and affordable pricing for all.
People from countries least responsible for, and most affected by, the climate crisis are often unable to attend important conferences due to lack of resources.
Make sure that everyone has the best chance of being there to make their voices heard by providing free or low-cost accommodation for those who really need it.
Be human, not a hotel.
We expect our hosts to be natural, respectful and authentic to themselves and to their guests. There’s absolutely no pressure for you to act like a hotel. Basic comfort and basic kindness. A sofa or mattress on the floor is great.
Meet remarkable people from around the world and connect with this truly international movement.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
