Climate Action Now: Campaign Workshops across Scotland during June

 

This is a big year for tackling climate change in Scotland as the Scottish Government prepares to introduce a new Climate Bill. In 2017, over 19,000 members of the public supported our calls for an ambitious Bill with the policies for Scotland to do its share in limiting climate change.

Join Stop Climate Chaos Scotland for a Campaign Workshop to share knowledge and plan action on the Bill. We need to ensure the Government commits to a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest, and a roadmap to reach that. So it’s time to start campaigning!

These interactive workshops will give you more information on Scotland’s new Climate Change Act and how you can get involved in the campaign for climate justice.

We are encouraging people from all across Scotland who care about climate change to come along to meet other activists passionate about climate change, engage with the new climate Bill and to get involved in the campaign.
