Ellie Goulding becomes poster girl for next month's Cop26 climate summit

POP star Ellie Goulding has become the poster girl for the COP26 climate summit.

The Starry Eyed singer will use her profile to urge world leaders in Glasgow to take action on global warming.

She will also take the message to people in the UK and globally.

It comes as over 200 public events were announced in the “green zone” at the Glasgow Science Centre from November 1 to 12.

Ellie, 34, said: “I believe that COP26 must be the moment global leaders listen to the scientists and tackle the climate crisis for all our sakes.

“There’s going to be an incredible energy and focus in ­Glasgow in November and I think it’s important that as many people as possible take part in deciding their future on this planet.

“I’m encouraging as many people as possible to get involved.”

COP26 president designate Alok Sharma wants leaders in Glasgow to secure a deal to curb global warming at 1.5 degrees.

He said: “COP26 is our last best hope for the world to come together and tackle ­climate change.

“So the eyes of the world will be on Glasgow.”
