Tue 24 Sep - Wed 25 Sep
After months and years of campaigning on Scotland’s new climate bill, we now have the final date. MSPs in the Scottish Parliament will pass the law on Wednesday 25th September. That means we have just days left to improve Scotland’s climate targets.
Thanks to everyone who signed our petition calling on all the political party leaders to act with the urgency that’s needed and vote for a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2030 (compared to 1990 levels). We went to Parliament last week to hand the petition to party leaders. Read more about it in this Herald article.
In the run up to the final vote, we’ll be outside the Scottish Parliament reading key sections of the IPCC ‘Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC’ and reminding politicians of the need to act on the climate emergency and what is at stake.
We’d love it if you could join us for this, to read with us and then go into Parliament to watch the final debate and vote. We’ll be there 1-6pm Tuesday 24th and 830am-130pm on Wednesday 25th.
If you can only make it for a short time, we are inviting as many as possible to be there for 1230pm-1330pm on Wednesday to make our voices heard to politicians directly ahead of the debate.
