In today’s blog post, we’re highlighting three events that we expect to make headlines in November.
- The U.N. Climate Change Summit (COP27), convening in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, begins on Nov. 6. The Summit will gather leaders from the United Nations to address issues related to climate change. According to a U.N. report released in October, current policies put the world on track for warming of 2.8 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels with "no credible pathway" to the goal of limiting the increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius, as set forth in the 2015 Paris Agreement.
- The 2022 midterm elections will be held on Nov. 8. This election will decide all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, 35 seats in the Senate and numerous state and local elections. It is also the first election to be affected by redistricting from the 2020 census.
- The Thanksgiving holiday lands on Nov. 24, providing a time for family and friends to gather, share gratitude and be thankful. For some, food and football are at the heart of the holiday. For others, it’s the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season with Black Friday deals trending earlier and earlier each year. For those wishing to protest against the consumerism that has seeped into the Thanksgiving holiday, International Buy Nothing Day is also observed on Nov. 25.
