Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak in the UK and around the world, we have decided to close our office, with all staff now working from home.

The safety of our staff, volunteers, supporters and activists is of paramount importance to us. With this in mind, we’ve suspended all events involving groups of people meeting face to face for the time being. This will affect the following events:

Unfortunately, all of our Climate Week Northeast events in Aberdeen have been cancelled. This includes:

  • The UN climate talks are coming to Scotland – how can we get involved?, Sat 21st March
  • Getting our Decision Makers to Act, Sat 21st March
  • Art and Oil in the Age of Climate Emergency, Sunday 22 March
  • What the climate emergency means for oil & gas extraction in the North East, Wednesday 25 March

Our Spring Ceilidh on Saturday 2nd May has unfortunately been cancelled.

Young Friends of the Earth’s Skill Share is postponed – more details to follow!

With large events cancelled and many groups choosing not to hold meetings, we’ll be holding an online workshop to help you improve your skills. ‘Tools and skills to help you facilitate online meetings’ will take place from 6 – 8pm on Tuesday 23rd March.

As with any national or global crisis, it will be the poorest and most vulnerable who will suffer most during this period. We’re in solidarity with everyone affected, including those who may lose their job or income. Now is a time for us to care for each other – our colleagues, our networks, our neighbours, and those in need.

This is an evolving situation, and we’ll keep you all up to date with our plans when we can. In the meantime, stay safe.
