Climate Fringe Festival

What is the Climate Fringe Festival?

The Climate Fringe Festival is a community-led and community-organised series of events taking place across the whole of Scotland, showcasing the diversity of the Scottish Climate Movement.

It’s Scotland’s call for action on climate change, and will take place throughout September 2022.

Last year, over 200 events took place during Climate Fringe Week with thousands of people showing their support – both in their community and online – for urgent action on climate change. We want to make the Climate Fringe Festival even bigger, with a diverse range of events taking place across the whole of Scotland.

This year’s Climate Fringe Festival will be a fantastic opportunity to build momentum following COP26 in Glasgow. Together, we will show decision makers that the movement is stronger than ever and people from all walks of life are committed to take action on climate change.

We particularly welcome events from grassroots and underrepresented groups within the Climate Movement and strongly encourage collaborations between groups from different backgrounds.

Join us in making the Climate Fringe Festival the largest community-led event for climate that Scotland has seen!

Please note the Climate Fringe Festival is aimed at groups and organisations based in Scotland. If you are organising an event somewhere else in the UK check out the Great Big Green Week.

How can I get involved?

2. Use the Climate Fringe Festival Logo

Add the Climate Fringe logo on any communications about your event – images, posters, social media posts, digital flyers, etc.
