This weekend will see Scotland showcasing a range of community-led initiatives to tackle climate change and transform the country into a safer, cleaner place to live.
In a series of events across the country, people will learn about what is happening at the crucial United Nations climate talks in December and how they can get involved in local campaigns. There will also be the Scottish premiere of the new film, ‘This Changes Everything’, inspired by Naomi Klein’s book about how we must deal with climate change.
The weekend will include
➢ Free climate change campaigning training events in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee & Inverness
➢ A People’s Climate Rally in Edinburgh
➢ The co-ordinator of the French Climate Coalition will speak at events in Glasgow and Edinburgh to encourage people to join massive demonstrations in Paris this December.
Gail Wilson, Campaigns Manager of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, said: “In this vital year for addressing climate change it is great to see organisations and individuals coming together to demand greater political action. Through community renewables, active travel or growing local food, people are already adopting the solutions we need to build a better, low carbon Scotland.
“The climate festival events will help people to campaign for the changes we need to make at home and contribute to the larger international fight against climate change. “
“We must keep the pressure on leaders ahead of the key United Nations climate talks in Paris to ensure that they make a deal that delivers what both climate science requires and justice demands.“
Coalition Climate 21 is a group of over 140 French organisations putting together events to raise awareness and build momentum around the UN Summit in Paris. The group’s co-ordinator, Juliette Rousseau, who will speak at events in Glasgow and Edinburgh said: “We are determined to use this moment as an amazing movement-building opportunity. Only by taking action together can we start to build a strong answer to the climate crisis and it’s causes.
“We are all aware that the fight for a safe climate for all neither begins nor ends with the Paris climate talks but 2015 is our best moment in years to come together to demand the world we know is within our reach.
“From Scotland to Paris and beyond, we are united in wanting an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities for all. “
