Climate activists wearing masks representing world leaders pretend to tug of war, while others dressed up in Squid Game-inspired costumes stand in the background

Activists and protesters call on world leaders to "stop playing climate games" and to fulfil their climate pledges at a protest inspired by "Squid Game", the South Korean dystopian show that became a global sensation after its release on Netflix, and staged outside the COP26 venue. The UN’s climate conference started this week in Glasgow and will continue for another two weeks to try to craft national plans to forestall the most devastating impacts of global warming.
