Show the love for Scotland

We're asking people to 'Show the love' for the places they care for which might be affected by climate change as part of a week of action across the UK.

As a member of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) we're calling for people to stand up for the special places they want to protect from global warming, as part of the ‘Show the Love’ campaign which kicked off on 7 February.

In Scotland, we have a real opportunity to influence positive action on climate change with the recent publication of the Scottish Government’s draft Climate Change Plan.  The plan outlines an attractive vision of the kind of low-carbon society we could be living in come 2032

Show the Love is an annual celebration of all the things we love but could lose to climate change organised by The Climate Coalition in England, and sister organisation Stop Climate Chaos Scotland.

From our own back gardens to the coastal seabird cliffs of St Kilda, from historical buildings like Stirling Castle to local parks, woodland and waterways - too many special places are bearing the brunt of a changing climate.

To launch ‘Show the Love’ in 2017 The Climate Coalition published ‘Weather warning’ - a report highlighting how a host of much-loved habitats, iconic landmarks and everyday places in the UK are already being impacted by climate change, including the famous neolithic village of Skara Brae in the Orkney Isles.
