A pilgrimage from Dunbar to Glasgow to reflect on the climate and ecological crisis in anticipation of COP26.

The pilgrimage includes a public engagement programme to accompany the walkers and encourage participation en route.

Participating organisations include Deep Time Walk Project, Interfaith Scotland, John Muir’s Birthplace, North Light Arts, Peace and Justice (Scotland), Scottish Dance Theatre, eta.


The route follows two well trodden pathways: The John Muir Way from Dunbar to Kirkintilloch and St Ninian’s Way from Kirkintilloch to Glasgow.

Note: The Pilgrimage for COP26 route map and cultural programme will be made available for download and distribution by early August.

Daily distances and overnight destinations are still being researched but a significant ‘way station’ will be established in Edinburgh (from the 22nd-24th October) where the Pilgrimage for COP26 will have its capital launch. The launch will be bookended by a welcoming ceremony in Glasgow, after which pilgrims will be encouraged to engage with the COP26 Coalition events programme.   



Individuals, community groups and other cultural organisations are invited to join the pilgrimage and contribute to the programme.
