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.

Dunblane Cathedral Earth Hour event this Saturday. #promisefortheplanet #earthhouruk

From the congregation of Dunblane Cathedral:

Here in Dunblane we are preparing, with the Brownies, Guides, Cubs, Scouts, Girls Brigade and Boys Brigade, to celebrate Earth Hour on Saturday 24th March from 8 -9.30 pm. Earth Hour is a global celebration, started by WWF, taking place annually where hundreds of millions of people across the world switch off their lights, organise events and think about ways they can take action to protect our planet.

This year in Dunblane we will be joining this global movement by switching off the lights in Dunblane Cathedral and halls, taking part in some fun activities including a “Torchlight treasure hunt” in Dunblane Cathedral and thinking about action we can take to protect our planet. This year we plan to focus on “Our use of plastic and 10 ways we can reduce it”. This will involve a presentation, viewing tables of the plastic we regularly use and the alternatives. There will then be the opportunity to “make a promise for the planet” in reducing your personal use of plastic.

Small changes make a world of a difference
