Climate change; the need to lead
Why Scotland’s climate bill matters to the world’s poorest
Thursday 19th March at 6pm at the Scottish Parliament.
As part of SCCS’s climate campaign, SCIAF, the World Development Movement, Christian Aid and Oxfam are hosting a reception at the Scottish Parliament to highlight Scotland’s global responsibility to ensure a strong climate bill.
Come along and lobby your MSPs in person and help support our campaign.
2009 is a critical year for action on climate change. Scotland has the potential to lead the world with the forthcoming climate change bill and to set the standard for action at the post-Kyoto negotiations in Copenhagen at the end of the year. Climate change is already having a severe impact on the lives and livelihoods of millions in the poorest countries. Scotland’s contribution to international action on climate change could help ensure climate justice.
The way our MSPs vote on the climate change bill will make or break this.
The event is free, but you must register to be able to come. To book a place, contact Claire Canale at SCIAF on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0141 354 5555
