To raise awareness and highlight the importance of the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP26) in November, we are planning a climate festival: Climate Fèis: Skye, Raasay and Lochalsh. The festival will take place during August 2021 and activities will be COVID-adapted if necessary.
The Climate Festival will showcase how communities on Skye, Raasay and Lochalsh are responding to the climate emergency such as initiatives in local growing, care for the local environment and local displays, possibly using nearby bus stops and old telephone boxes.
We are making links with Highland Council and Keep Scotland Beautiful to seek their support and are planning to contact schools and community councils and development trusts.
The project office is based in Skye Bridge Studio in Kyle (with thanks to Jonathan Supper). For more information and to contribute your ideas, contact Trish Rogers and Sara Taylor (co-convenors and facilitators) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
