Climate Week competition for pupils

As part of activities for Scotland’s Climate Week 2019, the Scottish Government wants to hear what climate change means to you.

Climate change is our biggest challenge. Scotland has made excellent progress in helping to tackle climate change and has nearly halved emissions of greenhouse gases since 1990.

But we must do more and faster. That's why the Scottish Government has committed to net-zero for all greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. Everyone in Scotland: government, business and individuals need to do our part to help us become a net-zero society.

Primary school pupils - you are invited to send a photo or picture that shows what climate change means to you where you live.

Secondary school pupils - you are invited to submit a piece of writing demonstrating a vision for a net-zero Scotland and how you would take us there. Think about the different changes that Scotland needs to make in order to reach our targets.

Please email all entries to climate.change@gov.scot by midnight on Monday 21st October.

Winners for both competitions will be invited to the Scottish Parliament to discuss their entries with the First Minister.

All shortlisted entries will receive National Book Tokens to purchase books of their choice.
