'Working Together for a Fossil Free Scotland' is an opportunity for activists to come together, share plans about projects and campaigns, and get inspired to take fossil free action in their communities!
Earlier this year almost 100 people met in Edinburgh to reflect on the Paris climate talks and start mapping out a path towards a Fossil Free Scotland.
On 24th September we'll continue by celebrating what we've achieved so far and exploring what's next in key areas like divestment, fracking and transport.
Find out how to take action individually, together in our communities, and in our workplaces. Everyone is welcome. Whether you're new to the climate movement or a seasoned campaigner you'll leave feeling inspired, motivated and connected with the climate community, ready to work towards a Fossil Free Scotland.
We want to make sure people from all over Scotland can join us, so if the cost of travel or accommodation could affect your participation, please get in touch with our Activism Organiser, Shannon Stephens: email@example.com.
Registration from 9:30am. Beginning promptly at 10:00am.
If you’re on twitter we’ll be using #FFScot to talk about the event and to let people know about the campaign to make Scotland fossil free.
