Climate festival announced plans for September

 

Organisers Stop Climate Chaos Scotland have encouraged more groups to take part.

The Climate Fringe Festival, a diverse community-led series of events to build support for climate action, is taking place across Scotland this September.

The festival aims to bring communities together, generate conversation about Climate Justice, and raise awareness of the need to move towards a green, fair, zero carbon society.

A variety of groups across Scotland will take part in the Climate Fringe Festival. Over 50 events have already signed up, with more added each week.  

The full calendar can be found on the Climate Fringe website.

Nick Cullen, Climate Fringe coordinator at Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, said: “Now more than ever, it's so important that local communities are coming together to take action on climate change: with record breaking temperatures and the cost of living scandal, community resilience can help build towards a just and green world. 

“We are really excited about the Climate Fringe Festival, showcasing the amazing communities and climate projects across scotland. Together we can put pressure on decision makers to deliver real change almost a year on from COP26 in Glasgow.”

The Climate Fringe Festival is being coordinated by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, a diverse coalition of over 60 non-profit organisations, with many further organisations supporting the festival itself.

Groups who are interested in getting involved are encouraged to visit the Climate Fringe website to download a toolkit, upload their event to our calendar, and check out the range of events already planned.

One of those who have planned an event at the Highland Good Food Partnership (HGFP). 

HGFP’s Josie Fraser said: “The workshops will focus on our food system and the impact it has on our climate, with demonstrations on lowering food waste, fermentation, community funding support and creating sustainable farming. 

We will discuss how the partnership can support individuals and organisations to create a local food system that is better for the planet, better for people and better for producers.”
