2. Scottish Parliament Rally
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland is gathering supporters outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh. Together, we will show Scotland’s party leaders the range of issues that concern people across Scotland, with regards to climate change.
The idea is to hand in thousands of action postcards to First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, calling on her to deliver on Scotland’s world-leading climate commitments and make sure Scotland plays a proactive role in striving for an ambitious global deal in Paris.
Will you be there on 27th May? We need as many people as possible in attendance to show politicians that lots of people care about this issue. Stop Climate Chaos Scotland also need some helpers on the day so contact them if you can give a hand.
