Thursday 25th October, 12.45-2.15pm Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are asking people to join them on Thursday 25th October 2012 for a mass lobby of Parliament – an opportunity to show MSPs that people in Scotland want to see real action on climate change.
Three years ago, Stop Climate Chaos Scotland and thousands of their supporters lobbied hard for strong legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Scotland. In 2009 the Scottish Parliament passed the world’s strongest climate legislation: The Scottish Climate Change Act. However, the Scottish Government has failed to meet its very first (and not particularly challenging) target to reduce emissions under the Act. Unless the Climate Act is followed through with action, our ‘world-leading’ example of how to tackle climate change will be undermined.
SCCS are encouraging people from all across Scotland who care about climate change to meet with their politicians in the Scottish Parliament and call on them to ‘Get their Act together’ and ensure the Government delivers on the Act.
The event will begin at 12.45pm with registration and briefing, with the mass lobby itself running from 1.15 until 2.15pm. Full briefing will be provided in advance.
Places for this event are limited so if interested book early. Travel expenses can be provided. If you have any questions about the event, please get in touch via gail[at]stopclimatechaosscotland.org (replacing [at] with @).
