Climate Fringe launches
One of the notable successes to come out of COP26 was the wide range of community based climate actions organised both in Glasgow and elsewhere around the country. In the run up to COP, during September, a Climate Fringe Festival became the focus for hundreds of climate based events which were being organised across Scotland. Mirroring Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe, an amazingly eclectic mix of events, performances and climate actions were promoted through the Climate Fringe website. The Climate Fringe is happening again this September. Look out for the big launch this Friday.
The Climate Fringe Festival is a community-led and community-organised series of events taking place across the whole of Scotland, showcasing the diversity of the Scottish Climate Movement.
It’s Scotland’s call for action on climate change, and will take place throughout September 2022.
Last year, over 200 events took place during Climate Fringe Week with thousands of people showing their support – both in their community and online – for urgent action on climate change. We want to make the Climate Fringe Festival even bigger, with a diverse range of events taking place across the whole of Scotland.
This year’s Climate Fringe Festival will be a fantastic opportunity to build momentum following COP26 in Glasgow. Together, we will show decision makers that the movement is stronger than ever and people from all walks of life are committed to take action on climate change.
We particularly welcome events from grassroots and underrepresented groups within the Climate Movement and strongly encourage collaborations between groups from different backgrounds.
Join us in making the Climate Fringe Festival the largest community-led event for climate that Scotland has seen!
Please note the Climate Fringe Festival is aimed at groups and organisations based in Scotland. If you are organising an event somewhere else in the UK check out the Great Big Green Week.
