On October 27 KST, it was announced that YG Entertainment's top girl group, BLACKPINK, will be making a special appearance at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (hereafter referred to as COP26), which will be held in Glasgow, UK for two weeks from October 31 to November 12 local time.
The conference will be joined by the leaders of over 130 countries, who will participate to discuss on actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the Paris Agreement (also known as Paris Climate Accords).
