Our COP26 coverage

What will this free trial entitle you to during COP26? We have a whole host of content for you over the next few weeks.

Each day during COP26, we'll be bringing you the latest in breaking news both inside and outside the conference. We'll have reporters inside the SEC, and others on the streets of Glasgow ready to bring you the most up to date news from all across the city.

Each day, we'll have experts from across the environmental sphere in our Voices Live section, promising analysis and opinion on the biggest issues of the day.

And as a subscriber, you have access to our wide variety of newsletters - including our dedicated COP26 daily briefing. As the conference gets underway, our reporters will give registered users and subscribers a digest of what's to come throughout the day, and the biggest updates from the ground.

What else will you get with your subscription?

A subscription will give you access to our unrivalled COP26 coverage as well as a number of unmissable perks. 

With that subscription, you’ll see 80% fewer adverts on our website and have unlimited access to all our stories, including premium articles.

This means you will be able to read The Herald's online coverage from our award-winning team uninterrupted. 

It’s our job to make sure The Herald is your go-to site to keep you up-to-date.

But as a Herald subscriber, you will also have access to exclusive "Premium" articles. Around one in five of our stories are only available to people who have signed up to a Herald subscription.

These articles are the very best of what we do - written from our top writers across a range of specialisms, from politics, to sport, to business, to arts. They could be analysis, comment, insight, interviews, features or big newsworthy investigations.
