More than a year before Climate COP26, Richard Lindsay (SRI) proposed to UNEP's Global Peatland Initiative (GPI) that the partnership should consider hosting a Peatland Pavilion when COP26 finally convened in Glasgow. The concept was embraced with considerable enthusiasm and initial steps involved UEL's MArch students in developing a concept for a Peatland Pavilion structure. The design, developed by students Hussein Ali Kasim and Mohammed Patel, was firstly adopted as the basis for a Virtual Peatland Pavilion which could run alongside a physical Pavilion, promote participation in the event and also provide a post-COP legacy. Subsequently the iconic 'water droplet tower' of Hussein and Mohammed's design was designed as a physical structure with the help of the 2021 MArch students then constructed as a central part of the physical COP26 Peatland Pavilion. This was the first time that a pavilion devoted to peatlands had featured at any inter-governmental treaty COP, and its success in promoting the global importance of peatlands is set out in this Summary Report.
