About the Climate Fringe
This site provides a platform for all of civil society, from activists to NGOs to Trade Unions, particularly in Scotland, to share events and connect around Climate Change and COP26. It has been built by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland to join together all the activities that are happening in the run-up to, and during COP.
We created this site to share information on events across the climate community in Scotland in the run up to COP. We hope it is a place where everyone can feel at home, a platform for many and diverse voices, accessible to new audiences, and a Scottish welcome to international civil society planning to come to Glasgow
About the Coalitions
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland is a civil society coalition who have been campaigning together on climate change since 2007. We have over 50 members including environment NGOs, community groups, development charities, unions, and faith and belief groups.
We have created this website as a platform to serve wider civil society in Scotland, the UK, and globally, in the run up to COP26. Our aims are to build momentum in the run up to COP, to provide local knowledge, support and a welcome for global civil society coming to Glasgow, and to help establish a strong legacy, particularly for Scottish civil society, from COP26.
SCCS are working in collaboration with The COP26 Coalition, which is bringing together activists and campaign-groups across the UK and internationally to organise ahead of the UN Climate Negotiations in Glasgow. The COP26 coalition brings together groups from diverse constituencies such as trade unions, development and environment NGOs, direct action groups, climate justice organisations, migrant & racial justice networks, faith groups, and student movements.
Members of the COP26 Coalition are currently working together on Mobilisations, Logistics, Movement Building, Local Connectivity, International Solidarity, Political Strategy and Fundraising. You can sign up to the Coalition email list email newsletter here.
