  • Scotland’s largest city — famous for deep fried Mars bars, club nights and sectarian soccer rivalry — is about to attract a network of global elites more comfortable gathering over champagne in Davos for the World Economic Forum.
  • One castle on the Glasgow outskirts has been rented by a consortium of the National Grid, the utility Octopus energy, the U.S. Atlantic Council think tank and Liebreich for a two-week program of discussions and dinners — many of which will have a paying sponsor.
  • Until the Paris Agreement, it was mostly left-wing governments which provided those platforms, but now it is a broader set of actors shaping climate action — including city administrations and large companies.
