The BB at COP26

Tuesday 26th October 2021

Margaret Pang is a leader at 7th Gloucester and a member of the Brigade’s International Group. She will be attending the United Nations’ Climate Conference (COP26) in Glasgow from 1st to 12th November, as part of a Global Fellowship delegation including members from Zambia and St Kitts.

Margaret is going to be taking over our Instagram and posting live from COP26 from Sunday 31st October, so make sure you are following @theboysbrigade_ukroi to get involved in the action!

Find out a bit more about Margaret . . .

What is your current role within The Boys’ Brigade?
I am Leader in Charge of Anchors at 7th Gloucester BB & GA as well as helping in all the other age groups. Also, I am the Under 26 representative for the West of England & Channel Islands District on the England Regional Committee and part of the BB International Group.

How long have you been a member of The Boys’ Brigade?
I have been a member of BB for over 9 years; I started when I was 14 and was part of The Girls’ Brigade before that.

Why do you think it is important to attend COP26?
I am very interested in hearing how countries are working together to tackle the issue of climate change and hoping strong actions will come to prevent further damage to the planet we live on. I want to meet with other like-minded people and learn from their experiences.

Why do you think it is important for the BB and young people to be a part of addressing climate change?
Climate change is a reality that is impacting our planet and it is the responsibility of every individual to contribute towards a brighter future. It is the younger generation that will see more of the increasing changes to the environment so we need to take action. Who else should be more invested than us in our own future? Imagine the difference all the children and young people involved with BB could make if we committed to live our lives slightly greener, whilst inspiring others to do the same!

What are you most interested in seeing at COP26?
I’m excited about seeing other BB people from across the world face-to-face, making new friends with other young people, sharing my experience with the BB family, and maybe hoping to see some famous faces!

Make sure to tune in on Instagram from 31st October until 12th November to see what Margaret and her team get up to!
