Scotland

Scots groups join forces to march for climate, justice and jobs

Representatives of Scotland’s Nepalese community, business sector and students came together today to highlight the different reasons they will be joining Scotland’s Climate March in Edinburgh on Saturday 28th November.  
 
Thousands of people are expected to march through the streets of the capital ahead of crucial United Nations climate negotiations in Paris that begin on 30th November.  The Edinburgh march is part of a weekend of global action by hundreds of thousands of people in cities around the world.  

Climate Revolution Cycle Ride

Anyone up for a bike ride?  
 
Earlier this year a few of us (Team Sky-lark) rode from Edinburgh to London to highlight the need for climate action. We are now planning a ride, to take place the day before Scotland’s Climate March, to publicise the march in Edinburgh and the need for a climate revolution.  We are looking for as many keen cyclists as possible to join us to make as big a peloton as possible.
 
The Message

Caring for Mother Earth

Kagyu Samye Dzong Tibetan Buddhist Centre is hosting a day of events looking at 'Caring for Mother Earth'.  We will be given a talk by environmentalist and community garden director Nathalie McCall entitled 'Think Globally, Act Locally'.  This will be followed by a tree planting of indigenous fruit trees.
