Ask the Climate Question – online debate with political parties Monday 18th April.



From Stop Climate Chaos Scotland:

With elections in Scotland this May, use your voice to call on political parties to turn climate ambition into climate action.

Join us online from anywhere in Scotland on Monday 18th April at 7pm.

For many years now, all parties in the Scottish Parliament have been broadly supportive of action on climate change.  In 2009, this was set down in law, in the form of the Scottish Climate Change Act, one of the first climate acts in the world.

At the UN climate talks in Paris at the end of last year, world leaders agreed to take more significant and more urgent action on climate change.  Political decisions made here in Scotland over the next five years will be critical to meeting our climate act, fulfilling our global commitments, and securing the benefits of becoming a low carbon country.

To give climate change the space and priority it deserves on the election agenda, Stop Climate Chaos Scotland is organising a national online debate – and we want you to take part!  

This will be your opportunity to engage with and ask questions of Scotland’s political parties from wherever you are, in a live online broadcast on Monday 18 April,at 7pm.

Speakers include:

  • Sarah Boyack, Environmental  Justice Spokesperson for Scottish Labour Party
  • Mark Ruskell, Environment Spokesperson for Scottish Green Party
  • SNP speaker TBC
  • Liberal Democrats speaker TBC
  • Scottish Conservative speaker TBC

More details about this event, including step-by-step instructions about how you can participate, will be published on this website in due course.

SCCS’ election campaign is directed towards the five political parties currently represented in the Scottish Parliament.
