We are facing a climate crisis, with people around the world feeling the deadly effects of climate breakdown.

But we know another world is possible. Tackling the root causes of climate change gives us a chance to stop its worst impacts and create a fairer and more equal world.

Without a radical transformation of our economies and energy systems we face devastating climate breakdown. This puts our ability to grow enough food at risk, increasing political instability and wiping out tens of thousands of plant and animal species.

What’s more, it is usually those who contributed least to the causes of climate change who will suffer most from its impacts.

Friends of the Earth Scotland campaigns for radical action to cut climate emissions and end fossil fuels here in Scotland, and demanding climate justice for all.

An end to North Sea Oil & Gas

Our major ‘Sea Change’ report has revealed UK’s oil and gas drilling plans, and Scottish Government’s support for them, are incompatible with responding to the climate emergency.

The research also shows that, with the right policies and support, clean industries could create more than three jobs for every oil and gas job at risk.

UN Climate Summit in Glasgow

This year’s UN Climate Summit (COP26) will be held at the SEC in Glasgow from 9 – 20th November 2020

We answer your key questions about the event, the issues and how you can get involved.

Demand Climate Justice!

Find out more about international climate action from the Paris Agreement to the IPCC, and how we work with our Friends of the Earth International network and other key allies to fight for climate justice.

No false solutions

Tackling the climate crisis requires urgent action to cut emissions and transform society, not years more delay in the hope that technology and the markets will provide the answer.

We’re fighting against false solutions.

Scotland's new climate law

MSPs passed a Climate Change Bill for Scotland in September 2019

People power helped improve the Bill but it still falls short of what the Climate Emergency requires.

The September 2019 week of climate action was the largest in Scottish history.  Adults joined the young people who had been walking out of school every Friday to demand climate action.

Impacts of climate change

We look at the evidence on how the climate emergency will impact on Scottish people, wildlife and society.

We are members of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) – a civil society coalition of over 50 member groups campaigning together on climate change.
