The Scottish Government is preparing to introduce a new Climate Change Bill that will set the levels of our ambition and action on tackling climate change for the decades to come.  Currently, their proposals don’t go far enough to seriously tackle the climate crisis or build a fairer, better Scotland.

The new Climate Bill should do our fair share of global climate action, deliver climate justice and set Scotland on the pathway to a zero carbon future. So it’s time to start campaigning!

Together with Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, we’re organising a series of activist workshops across Scotland. We’ll explore ideas around climate justice, share information on the climate bill and how to influence it, and skills to help people get involved in the campaign. There will be training on how to meet and lobby your MSP and a chance to meet up with others for local campaigning.

 

In partnership with Take One Action, we present a special film tour of Not Without Us – with a film screening following most of the June workshops. Not Without Us is a rousing documentary that connects the dots between decreasing biodiversity, indigenous land rights abuses, fossil-fuel driven economies, growing economic inequality and government inaction in the face of the greatest crisis engulfing our planet. 

Putting frontline communities’ perspectives at its centre, Not Without Us immerses viewers in the moving, personal journeys of grassroots campaigners from across the globe as they attempt to harness the only force that can prevent catastrophic climate change: the will of the people.

We are delighted to be able to offer a subsidised ticket price to the film for those attending a workshop.

If you wish to attend both the workshop and film in your city, make sure you book the workshop first to receive the link to the discounted film ticket!
