Scotland's Climate Week
This week, 13 – 19 September, is Scotland’s Climate Week. A chance to raise awareness of the global climate emergency.
With fewer than 50 days until world leaders come to Glasgow to make decisions on how we are globally going to combat climate change as part of COP26, we are thrilled to be able to support #ScotClimateWeek with a wide range of activities across our spectrum of work.
During the week will be engaging with and supporting businesses, schools, communities and individuals to ensure they know what they can do at home, work and in their neighbourhoods to combat climate change as we head towards COP26.
Some of the activities include:
- Running online teaching and education sessions for primary schools, secondary Eco-Committees and educators as part as our first online Schools Climate Action Week
- Launching our Climate Action Topic for Eco-Schools Scotland.
- Delivering a free online workshop on the climate emergency open to all to help bust the myths and explain the jargon empowering attendees to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The keynote address will be from Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy and Transport, Michael Matheson.
- Launching Scotland’s Climate Festival
- Providing Climate Emergency Training to a number of organisations and individuals including SFHA, youth leaders and businesses.
- Launching our new e-learning Climate Emergency Training module
Scotland’s Climate Week is an annual event, which we have supported with activity since 2016. But this year, we have scaled up and aim to make more impact than ever before so that the legacy of COP26 coming to Glasgow in 2021 continues and we can support Scotland’s ambition to become a Net Zero Nation as soon as possible.
