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, one in nine species of Scottish wildlife faces extinction from our shores, and worsening climate impacts are having devastating consequences around the world.

We urgently need all decision makers to take bold action to tackle the climate and nature crisis, inequality, provide secure jobs and improve health and wellbeing. We can come together to show them that people in Scotland care deeply about this, and have the power to drive action.

Join this workshop to hear more about the latest climate and nature issues and how to speak to decision makers about the things you care about and want to see action on. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with other climate and nature campaigners and to hear more about ways to make your voice heard over the next few months.

Speakers include:

Mike Robinson, Chair of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland

Laura Young, award winning climate activist, environmental scientist, and ethical influencer

Jamie Livingstone, Head of Oxfam Scotland

Peter Peacock, former MSP

Tirivafi Shuro, Global Advisor, Christian Aid
