People from around the world are urging Scotland to remain a global climate leader with the new Climate Change Bill. 100 individuals, including many directly impacted by climate change and those working to help tackle climate change, have taken photos with signs urging Scotland to “Give it 100%” in our efforts to cut emissions. Contributions include impassioned pleas from farmers in Africa, vulnerable communities in Asia, indigenous Arctic groups and Pacific Islanders.
The images and testimonies have been collected by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland. We received submissions from every inhabited continent backing their calls for Scotland to end climate pollution by 2050 at the latest.
The stories highlight how climate change is already impacting on livelihoods and the need for countries in leadership positions such as Scotland to show the required ambition to meet the Paris Climate Agreement. Many of those taking part give specific support for the call for a net zero emissions target by 2050 at the latest.
“The issues that effect communities here are land encroachment in community forestry areas, poverty, illegal fishing and climate change”
