Climate change is real and affects us all.

Join this art project with other learning disabled people to have your voice heard

COP26 is coming to Glasgow:  31 October to 12 November.


Project Ability is looking for 10 groups across Scotland to take part in a banner making project to highlight your concern on climate change.

Your banner can highlight a local or global issue.


No experience needed!

We will send you all materials and an artist will help you with the design. 

Groups taking part will be invited to an introduction meeting on Zoom on 1 September at 12pm.

We will learn about COP26 and hear how learning disabled people’s voices are being heard.

Also find out how easy is it to make a banner.

A material kit will sent to each group


There will be 4 design and make sessions; one a week for 4 weeks on Zoom. The times will be arranged with you. 

During COP26 your banner will be displayed in your community to highlight your concern on climate change


All the banners will be exhibited in Glasgow in January 2022 in an exhibition at Trongate 103.

For more information or to book please contact Elizabeth Gibson [email protected]

Project Ability and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are working together on this project.
