Scotland's Climate Week, an annual event to highlight climate change, takes place from 14 - 20 September 2020.
Climate Week aims to promote the message that, together, we can end Scotland’s contribution to climate change. It also focuses on encouraging organisations to take action to tackle climate change, and share their stories of how they're managing these changes to make a positive impact to benefit the environment.
While the circumstances are very different to previous years, Climate Week provides an important opportunity for organisations and communities to celebrate and showcase what they’re doing to tackle climate change. Despite the restrictions, there’s still lots that can be done to take action and make a difference.
Get involved and help Scotland reach its climate change targets.

Let's tackle climate change together
Scotland is proudly leading the fight against climate change and aims to be net zero for all greenhouse gases by 2045, to minimise the impact of climate change on our society and the environment. Net zero is when the emissions of greenhouse gases are balanced by removal of those gases, for example carbon being absorbed by forests.
