Event description

Description

Join Friends of the Earth Scotland as we journey to Bonn to demand climate justice ahead of the UN talks.

Fiji, one of the many islands facing huge damages without the rapid phase out of fossil fuels, will lead this year’s climate summit (COP23) in Bonn, Germany. There, government officials will negotiate the implementation of the Paris Agreement, just a few kilometres away from one of the largest, most polluting coal mining regions in Europe.

To mark the climate summit, join thousands of people from around the world demanding climate justice and 100% renewable and sustainable energy. Join us to get inspired ahead of a year of action as Scotland prepares to pass new climate laws.

FAQs

  • Price: we ask for a contribution of £150pp towards the travel costs, including a deposit payable now of £50. However, if cost would be a barrier to your attendance, please get in touch as we have a very small number of reduced cost places available for those who would not be able to join us otherwise.
  • Donations: The ticket price of £150 is heavily subsidised by Friends of the Earth Scotland. If you can, please add a donation to your booking so we can help support more people to come.
  • Travel: if you only want to travel with us on one leg of the journey, please get in touch before booking. We have a limited number of spaces and priority will be given to those who are able to travel with us for both legs of the journey.
  • Food: please note your ticket price does NOT include food, although basic meals may be made available at the accommodation space on a donations basis.
  • Access needs: please tell us about about any access needs or personal requirements when booking, to ensure we can make the appropriate travel and accommodation arrangements. Contact us if you'd like to discuss prior to booking.
