Climate Justice Campaigner Event

Climate Justice campaigner event. June 14th 2023

Message from Christian Aid Scotland:  

We are a third of the way through this crucial decade for climate action - yet Scotland is not on track to meet targets to reduce emissions, while worsening climate impacts are having devastating consequences around the world. We urgently need all decision makers to take bold action.

 As part of the Stop Climate Chaos Scotland coalition, Christian Aid is helping to organise an event to help people to connect with other climate and nature campaigners and to learn more about how you can make your voice heard. Join us online or in person on Wednesday the 14th of June to explore some of the key issues relating to the climate crisis and how together we can encourage decision makers to take action now.

6pm - 7.30pm
