The COP26 United Nations climate talks in Glasgow may now be over but the Climate Beacons project is still in full flow.
COP 26 - a global conference that tackles the climate crisis - was held in Glasgow in November 2021.
Climate Beacons for COP26 is a Scotland-wide collaborative climate and culture project in the lead-up to and following COP26. As a co-ordinating partner, ECCI is supporting the Climate Beacons project to stimulate long-term public engagement between environmental and arts organisations in the lead up to COP26.
The seven Climate Beacons will continue to work long into 2022 providing fun, novel and challenging ways to get involved in climate action.
You can look forward to:
- The Carbon Conflict & Climate Change Exhibition at the National Mining Museum in Midlothian, on until March 2022
- The new production, Gaia: The Foretold Storm, created by Beacon Arts Centre and Belleville Community Garden in Inverclyde
- The communal planting of a new micro-rainforest at Cove Park in Argyll in late spring
- Participating in the Scruffy Spots campaign, created by the Fife Climate Beacon
- Getting involved in a major new climate mapping project in Tayside
- Submitting stories about lived experiences of climate change to inform plans for the Outer Hebrides to adapt to climate impacts
- Reading a playful but actionable radical new climate immigration policy for the highlands, created by the Caithness and East Sutherland Beacon
You can get more information about the project and upcoming events and activities by visiting www.climatebeacons.com and watch a 3-minute film with photos of what has been happening so far and information on what to look forward to next.
