Scotland reports £500k for climate schemes before COP26: The Scottish Government is supplying nearly £500,000 of financing for communities all over Scotland to participate in climate action projects before the start of the COP26 climate summit within Glasgow in November.
The programme of climate change activity focuses to involve groups in the path to net zero & inspire them to take measures, with climate festivals helping regional communities to plan and supply their own events throughout Scotland.
Keep Scotland Beautiful & the Glasgow Science Centre will be in charge of the distribution of the programme, that will contain projects for young people, schools as well as youth groups.
Michael Matheson, Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy and Transport stated: “COP26 coming to Scotland is a unique opportunity to advance the society wide transformation demanded by the climate crisis. That’s why we are determined to make sure the event reaches out far beyond the negotiations in Glasgow, into every community in the country.
“Scotland has made great progress in delivering its world leading climate targets & is already over half way to net-zero. To end our contribution to climate change within a generation, we will all need to play role. Our communities & young people will be at the heart of that action. This programme will help empower everyone to take action to tackle climate change especially those that might have not previously engaged.”
