Edinburgh Mobilisation - COP28 Day of Action for Scotland

Start: Saturday, December 09, 202312:30 PM


Temperatures and waters are rising.
Injustices are rising.
We are rising!

In 2021 over 100,000 people took to the streets of Glasgow to tell world leaders at the COP26 climate talks they wanted action on the climate and nature emergencies.

Since then, despite record breaking temperatures and increasingly devastating climate impacts, we have seen a lack of robust and urgent action to reduce emissions, protect nature, or make the biggest polluters pay for the damage they are causing.

At a time when the UK Government is rolling back on climate and nature policies, and the Scottish Government has delayed its vital new climate plan (which sets out the steps to achieve legally set targets), itโ€™s more important than ever for us to come together to show people in Scotland want the urgent and fair climate action that theyโ€™ve been demanding for decades.

Join us at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh on 9th December at 12.30PM to send a strong message to decision makers that we are united for action, to tackle the climate and nature crises, secure sustainable jobs, a fairer, greener, healthier society for everyone in Scotland and justice for those impacted by the climate crisis.
