WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- National Grid will bring voices from around the world to the leading decision makers on climate at COP26, the UN Global Climate Change Conference being held in Glasgow, Scotland in November. The Voice of All initiative gives people in the Northeast and across the US the opportunity to share their aspirations and ideas for a sustainable future. Hundreds of people from more than a half dozen countries have participated, and the Company is inviting everyone to join in. Entries close September 26.

The public is encouraged to go to National Grid’s Voice of All website and answer the question: “When it comes to tackling climate change, what are your hopes for the future and what are your biggest fears?” National Grid will collect responses and, using artificial intelligence software, create a singular speech that accurately represents the Voice of All.
