Climate Beacons for COP26 is a Scotland-wide collaborative project between climate change or environmental organisations and arts, heritage or cultural organisations to stimulate long-term public engagement in the lead-up to and following COP26.
Seven Climate Beacons run by partnerships made up of a mixture of cultural and climate focused organisations are working in Argyll, Caithness & East Sutherland, Fife, Inverclyde, Midlothian, the Outer Hebrides and Tayside up until June 2022.
This is the second of two events where people involved in running the Climate Beacons will share their experiences. The theme of this session is ‘Inclusive public engagement and climate justice‘, a chance to hear about how the Beacons approached creating forms of climate change public engagement that allow for meaningful interactions and engage with principles of access, inclusion and fairness.
The event will feature the following speakers:
- Charlotte Mountford, Co-Director of Lyth Arts Centre, and Dr Malaika Cunningham, Director of the Bare Project, on behalf of the Caithness & East Sutherland Beacon
- Nicole Manley, Artist and Soil Hydrologist with the British Geological Survey, and Victoria Robb, Education Manager at the National Mining Museum Scotland, on behalf of the Midlothian Beacon
- Duncan Zuill, Teacher at Levenmouth Academy, on behalf of the Fife Climate Beacon
The event will include some question and answer time with the speakers as well as time for group discussion in breakout rooms.
The event will be held via Zoom.
