Get involved with Scotland's Climate Week 2020
Scotland’s Climate Week for 2020 is 14–20 September.
While the circumstances are very different to previous years, Climate Week provides an important opportunity for organisations and communities to celebrate and showcase what they’re doing to tackle climate change.
Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, there’s still lots that can be done to get involved with Climate Week and help Scotland reach its climate change targets.
Join one of the many Climate Week events taking place online or run your own online event. Or raise awareness among your employees and stakeholders about climate change and its consequences for Scotland and the actions you’ve taken towards tackling climate change. The week also presents an ideal opportunity to encourage positive behaviours within the home, local community, and workplace. There's a toolkit and materials to support you on the Scottish Government's new Net Zero Nation website.
To help celebrate Climate Week we are delighted to share more about our climate action work:
Climate Emergency Training - We have Climate Emergency Training available for businesses, local authorities, communities and youth workers. Our climate change webpages also have background information about climate change, ways to take climate action and inspiring case studies.
Climate Challenge Fund - Through our management of the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund we support projects across Scotland to take action on climate change. Find your local project through our interactive map here and view case studies here. And stay tuned for exciting news on our annual Gathering event.
Youth Climate Action - Our work with young people also includes the innovative Climate Ready Classrooms project which prepares young people to join a national network of Carbon Literate ambassadors who plan and act on climate change issues within their own schools and communities. The initiative is supported by the Scottish Government.
Watch out for more of our climate change news via our social media channels over the week. And remember to use the hashtag #ScotClimateWeek to be part of the conversation on social media.
