Have your say on tackling the climate crisis
Scotland’s children and young people will be able to have their say on how to tackle the climate crisis during a series of meetings with decision-makers.
A day of climate surgeries with elected representatives will be held on Friday, 29 October, when the country’s youth can outline their calls to action around addressing the harm caused by climate change.
It comes only days before Scotland hosts the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference, COP 26, which is taking place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November.
The children’s climate surgeries event, being called ‘The Moment’, has been organised as part of the Children’s Parliament’s Climate Changemakers project.
For advice on how to plan and hold a meeting, visit the Have Your Say page on the Children’s Parliament website.
Spread the word
Those taking part can also share stories on social media using the hashtag #TheMoment.
Adult representatives will hear the ideas and build a national picture of engagement with children’s voices across Scotland through the map, which will be presented to international parliamentarians at the Globe Legislators’ COP26 Summit on 5 November.
