Stitches for Survival

Stitches For Survival is an international group of knitters, crocheters, stitchers and crafters who believe it is time to put the Earth, and not money, centre stage in political decisions. The group have crafted 1.5 miles of climate messages, representing the 1.5ยฐC target in the Paris Agreement, which will be exhibited on Glasgow Drying Green on the 6th November. After COP26, the scarf will be repurposed into blankets for refugees and other communities who need them.

Forest of Hope

by Collective Zurciendo el Planeta

The Forest of Hope project is a hand-embroidered installation created by +120 women from Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Europe. We play with the multiple meanings and associations of trees and forests, such as reforestation and climate mitigation, but our central message is a call to humanity to be more like a forest and flourish for the common good, to work more collaboratively, collectively and break away from the dynamics of domination and control which govern most modern societies.ย

Nourish Scotland,
Farm2Fork Dialogues Project

To date, the voices of farmers have often been absent in food systems and food policy discussions. For farmers to be at the forefront of change, it is necessary to strengthen trust between farmers and cities. During COP26, participants of the Global Fork2Farm dialogue will bring the issue of food systems to the climate negotiations.

Ted Leeming is an environmental photographer based in Scotland whose practice focuses on issues surrounding climate breakdown.ย

Colombia is the most dangerous country in the world for environmental activists. 611 have been murdered since the signing of the peace accord between the FARC guerrillas and the Government in 2016. We would like to pay homage to them.

World Climate March,
We all march together

Activists around the world are marching for climate justice. Climate change has no borders and affects us all. It especially hurts those in poorer countries, which are also the countries that contribute the least to it. The richest 1% produce twice as much carbon emissions as the poorest half of the worldโ€™s population. The voices of those affected the most must be heard by the leaders at COP26.ย 

The World Climate March is led by NGOs and CSOs around the world. Find out more at worldclimatemarch.org.
