Campaigns

As well as climate striking, we are working to tackle other issues and be involved in other projects too. Below you can find information on campaigns we have launches or are part of.

TEACH THE FUTURE

Teach the future is a youth-led initiative pushing for educational reform to put education on the climate crisis at the heart of the education system.
 
Climate education in Scotland is inadequate as learning about sustainability is still limited to a few subjects, primarily geography and biology, which is not good enough. As the generation who need to be prepared to deal with the climate emergency, it is essential the students currently in education are properly educated, and the teach the future campaign pushes to make this happen. The Teach the Future Scotland campaign has four asks;
 
  1.   A government commissioned review into how the whole of the Scottish formal education system is preparing students for the climate emergency and ecological crisis. 
  1.  
  2.   Inclusion of the climate emergency and ecological crisis in teacher education and a new professional teaching qualification
  3.  
  4.   Increased priority for sustainability in school inspections and publicly influencing educational rankings
  5.  
  6.   A Scottish Climate and Biodiversity Emergency Education Act

JUST & GREEN RECOVERY FOR SCOTLAND

As we recover from the devastating impacts of coronavirus, we have a chance to transform our society for the better.

 

Coronavirus has reminded us of what is really important – looking after each other and our communities, our health and wellbeing, well funded public services, and a good and secure income for all.

 

As Scotland moves past a peak of infections our attention is turning to what comes next.

 

The choices we make now through our recovery plan and help for struggling firms will shape Scotland for decades to come. We can’t write a blank cheque to big polluters or restart an economy that only worked for the wealthy.

 

Instead we must re-programme our economy so that it works for people and the planet. We must build back a better Scotland that focuses on our collective wellbeing, with strong public services and a decent income for all.

 

By doing our fair share of climate action and ensuring a Just Transition for workers, we can create good, green jobs across the country.

 

We can build a more engaged society where everyone has a say in the decisions that affect them.

 

To do this, we need to build a movement of support. Together with Friends of the Earth Scotland and over 70 other organisations in Scotland we’re calling for a Just and Green Recovery from coronavirus. Get involved and help us build back better.
