Join Stop Climate Chaos Scotland to share knowledge and plan action on the Climate Change Bill in a free workshop from 2pm to 430pm on Saturday 16 June at Renfield St Stephen’s, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 4JP.

We need to ensure the Government commits to a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest, and a roadmap to reach that. So it’s time to start campaigning!

This is a big year for tackling climate change in Scotland as the Scottish Government prepares to introduce a new Climate Bill. In 2017, over 19,000 members of the public supported calls for an ambitious Bill with the policies for Scotland to do its share in limiting climate change.

This interactive workshop, hosted by Oxfam, will give you more information on Scotland’s new Climate Change Act and how you can get involved in the campaign for climate justice.

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are encouraging people from all across Scotland who care about climate change to come along to one of our workshops to meet other activists passionate about climate change, engage with the new climate Bill and to get involved.

You can take action now by emailing your local MSP to call for a stronger Climate Change Bill

climtechangeplanThe Scottish Government has published a draft Climate Change Plan which contains detailed proposals to achieve a 66% reduction in Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Roseanna Cunningham has said the Scottish Government’s draft Climate Change Plan demonstrates “a new level of ambition” in its work to build a prosperous low carbon economy and a fairer, healthier Scotland.

Scotland has already exceeded its 2020 climate change target by achieving a 42% reduction in emissions six years early. The draft Climate Change Plan raises ambitions higher still by setting out how Scotland can reduce emissions by 66% by 2032.

In response to the draft Climate Change Plan Tom Ballantine, Chair of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland said;

“This new plan paints an attractive vision of the kind of low-carbon society we will be living in in 15 years’ time – a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous Scotland.  However, we have serious concerns about the plan’s lack of new actions to deliver this vision.”
