The campaign aims to collect 10,000 messages and share them at the Cop26 talks
A new video is urging people to get behind a major charity sector Cop26 campaign.
Climate Scotland aims to bring the voices of ordinary people to bear on attempts to save the planet from environmental ruin.
It is being co-ordinated across Scotland’s charity and voluntary sector and is supported by an array of leading groups.
The Climate Scotland campaign was launched in the run-up to the crucial Cop26 climate summit which will be held in Glasgow in November.

Through Climate Scotland, people can send leaders a message to show they want strong and meaningful action to protect the things they love, and create a better future for people everywhere.
People visiting the Climate Scotland website are able to add their voice to the campaign by selecting a topic that is most of interest to them and adding a comment to say why.
Topics cover a broad range of perspectives and include flourishing communities, greener, fairer livelihoods, wildlife and nature and sustainable food systems.
The campaign aims to collect 10,000 messages and share them at the Cop26 talks, either at the Green Zone (an official UK government space) or another high profile venue. Through this, everyone in Scotland has the opportunity to show world leaders how much they care about the climate and nature emergencies.
More than 20 charities, civil society groups and non-profit organisations – including the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, Oxfam and RSPB Scotland - have already signed up to be a campaign partner.
It is being co-ordinated by the Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS), itself a diverse coalition of over 60 organisations working together on climate change.
